Current WIP - Ruffle Scarf Pattern


It's so undulating!

I found this lovely wool, hand-painted yarn and got a free pattern for the scarf at a LYS after I saw their sample scarf. I thought it was such a lovely pattern, very organic, and in colors of blue and green would be very aquatic. It's a hard scarf to 'model' so please excuse the pics.

I'm probably going to use the whole skein, which I believe is over 400 yards. I just think it looks nicer the more that can be left draped across the torso. The pattern uses a lot of yarn, of course, with all the ruffles. What I had not known until I got this pattern is that you could make ruffles so easily while knitting. I always thought of ruffles as a crocheting possibility but not with knitting.

Here is the pattern.

Ruffle Scarf
Materials 350 yards of yarn
Needles: size depends on yarn of choice. Choose one size larger than what the yarn calls for.
Directions: Cast on 20 stitches.
Row 1: Knit 8 stitches, turn.
Row 2: Knit 8 stitches, turn.
Row 3: Knit 6 stitches, turn.
Row 4: Knit 6 stitches, turn.
Row 5: Knit 4 stitches, turn.
Row 6: Knit 4 stitches, turn.
Row 7: Knit all 20 stitches.
Repeat rows 1-7.
Save enough yarn at the end to bind off.

That's it! Easy peasy.

And here is Mr. Biddles on the computer. Literally.

And my latest favorite pic of him. Ehhhn.


  1. Love this scarf!! Thanks for posting the pattern. Can I ask what weight the yarn was that you used?


  2. Hi Ela
    Gosh I'm so sorry I didn't see your comment sooner- I have not been blogging for quite some time.
    I can tell you it was 8 oz weight. I did not use the whole skein after all, btw.
    Thank you for your interest!
