Image of Ruffled Spirit Scarf

We used duplicate stitch to put our school's initials on this frilly, ruffled spirit scarf. A chart of all letters is included in the pattern. Knitting with Ruffles requires a special, yet simple, technique. The loops are formed by inserting the needle into this tape-fabric yarn. Please click here for detailed photographs and written instructions on working with ruffles. Or click here for a short instructional video and audio description about working with Ruffles.

Ruffled Spirit Scarf

Lion Brand® Ruffles® - Lion® Wool

GAUGE:

16 stitches by 24 rows = 4 inches (10 cm)

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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

DUPLICATE STITCH

Duplicate stitch is a very simple embroidery stitch where you use a piece of stockinette knit as canvas and place your stitches so that they follow the weave of the stockinette. It works best on stockinette pieces where the back of the work (where the yarn is carried) is not visible.

Thread the yarn into the large-eyed, blunt needle. Working from the back of the fabric, bring the needle up through the center of an existing stitch.

Follow the yarn of the stitch up, to the point where it goes under the next stitch above. Insert your needle at this point, so your yarn lies on top of the existing yarn in the stitch and bring it back up at the point where the yarn of the existing stitch comes back to the front.

Following the existing stitch and insert the needle in the same loop where you started. Keep the tension loose so that your new color stays on top.

To continue to the next stitch in the same horizontal row, simply bring the needle up through the center of that stitch and repeat the process.

To skip several stitches, simply pass the yarn under as many stitches as you wish to skip, bringing it up in the center of the stitch where you want the bottom of your new stitch to be.

NOTES:

Knitting with Ruffles requires a special, yet simple, technique. The loops are formed by inserting the needle into this tape-fabric yarn. Please visit www.LionBrand.com to read or click here for a short instructional video and audio description about working with Ruffles.

Ruffled Spirit Scarf Reviewed by Holly Wischer on 2009-12-14 *****
This scarf was great! It took me a couple of months to finish it because I had school, but it looks really nice!

My only suggestion is using 3 balls of the main color, because two balls wasn't enough. And I ended up buying an extra ball of the Ruffles yarn, but that could have been due to how I knit with it, rather than the way the pattern was created.
