Image of Elegant Scarf
Knitting with Ruffles requires a special, yet simple, technique. The loops are formed by inserting the needle into this tape-fabric yarn.

Elegant Scarf

Lion Brand® Ruffles® - Lion® Cashmere Blend

GAUGE:

16 sts + 24 rows = 4" [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with A. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

Carry unused yarn up side edge of work, do not end off. Leave a 6" [15 cm] tail of B when joining a new ball. Tails will be woven in after piece is completed.

easy if you read the directions Reviewed by Danielle Munch on 2009-09-12 ****
My scarf turned out beautifully and looks just like the photo.

Make sure you read the directions for working with the yarn first - you have to knit INTO the yarn, you don't just work it like a normal yarn. If you work it normally, it will simply turn out like working with ribbon and will not create the ruffles.
