A stylish homemade gift: Ruffled scarf that can be personalized by changing the colors!
Looking for a homemade fashionable gift idea? This ruffled scarf is made with a basic knit stitch from one skein of yarn and can be made in two hours.
These ruffled scarves are very popular this year. One lady in our church brought us a catalog to show a ruffled scarf like these sells for $60!!! Considering the cost of the yarn and minimum wage for 2 hours you can make this for approximately $20- a savings of $40!!!
Using these 6 stitch directions the finished ruffled scarf length is approximately 5 foot. If you want to make the ruffled scarf shorter and wider then you can add stitches.
Red Heart Boutique Sashay yarn or starbella
size 10 mm knitting needles
The yarn is similar to a mesh. You will work with the top of the yarn while the more decorative edge ruffles to create the ruffled scarf. Find starting place on yarn by measuring 4 inches from one end. Put the needle in and out of the mesh 6-10 times so you have at least 6 ‘loops’ on the needle.
Knit using the top two strands of the mesh instead of the entire yarn.
Continue knitting till you have 6 inches remaining. Bind off and knot both ends. Trim off extra.
