Frill-Seeker Scarf Reviewed by l on 2011-01-18 ****
The scarf came out quite well for me. almost like in the picture. Although I didn't use the cashmere yarn, but a ball of mohair yarn that I already had. The mohair is a bit thicker so the ruffles are closer together, but otherwise I'm happy with it. The only problem I had is when I started I didn't know you have to knit AND purl with the ruffle yarn so the ruffles will all be on the knit side of the scarf.

This pattern is most difficult
to understand. I ran out of
the cashmere blend yarn.
After running out of the yarn
I noticed on the back of the
label the pattern directions were different than this one but had the same pattern number. I can't find the yarn locally so it means more postage to order the cashmere blend yarn from Lion Brand Yarn company. Not a happy camper needing to finsh this is 09 days for a Christmas present.

This is an adorable scarf and once you get the hang of working with ruffle yarn,it is quite easy.

This scarf is cute, but your instructions needs a little corrections...(if you knit from one end to the other end, half of the ruffed yarn is smoothly in an up-down direction, and half of the other end of the scarf will be side-way [left-right] directions-still talking about the directions of the ruffled yarns...
What I did was: I knit the first half and put all the sts on stitch holder, then restart with the other half, working in reverse from the instruction, and at the end I joined them together with "Grafting technique".
This way my result was pleased because both ends of the scarf (ruffled yarns were in the directions they were supposed to be!
*** It probably won't show much if you do in black, but if in white or tweed color, believe me, it shows! I did mine in tweed color and it really showed, so I ripped half of the scarf out and restarted the way I explained above. You can see the ruffles parts are opposite directions in the middle of the scarf. As the two ends of scarf fall when you put it around your neck. Thank you!

Frill-Seeker Scarf Reviewed by Cynthia Mantooth on 2009-07-31 **
I have been knitting for many years and was totally baffled by this pattern which is supposed to be EASY. Yeah right. I found the ruffles very clumsy to make but cute. The yarns are gorgeous. It was difficult to figure out what to do with the yarn on the sides. The pattern is unclear. The ruffle yarn had to be knitted up in the first stitch on the long straight stitch sections which made a thick border. The only other options were to cut the yarn or have a large loose stretch along the side. Weird. Cute scarf though and I had no trouble at all with the porportions like the previous reviews. The size was fine and was not uneven at all. It just made me feel stupid. It took me and my best friend many months to get this pattern to work.

The pattern that came with the scarf was uneven and unflattering. I ripped it out and then tried the one on the yarn wrapper - this one even worse with ALL the ruffles on one side of the neck. I ripped this and made up my own pattern and am at last satisfied. However, the FEEL of the yarns is wonderful, and I could see using the ruffles for collar and cuffs on any piece.

It's a great project and the Ruffles is fun to work with, but I was short quantities of both the Ruffles and cashmere yarn. I had to adjust the pattern at the end to make it work without buying two more skeins. It would be great if the pattern was adjusted.
