Ruffle Me Up

What a beautiful, unique knit! I absolutely loved this one for its simplicity and sophisticated style, but most of all, because it is 100% perfect for the friend that it is going to. I also love the creamy goodness of the Premiere yarn I used. I have always had such a soft spot for this yarn, and without knowing its fate, came home with four skeins of it in May. Who knew?! The only change I made to the patten, was to shorten the total length. The pattern says that 4 skeins will give you 86"; however, my 4'10" friend does not need an accessory scarf that long. I used 3.5 skeins and ended up with about 74".





Pattern: Ruffles Scarf out of Scarf Style
Yarn: Classic Elite Premiere Cotton in natural
Measurements: About 74" long.
Started: November 20, 2005
Finished: November 30, 2005
Other Details: This was knit on US6 Addi's. I followed the pattern and even used the yarn they recommend! The only change I made was to the total length since it would have been too long for my shorter friend :)

Hey, I love it! I am desperate to finish my second ruffle but I'm losing motivation. Your finished product inspires me to get moving!

I'm a long time lurker on your blog and I've just entered the blog world myself. Check it out: http://exercisebeforeknitting.blogspot.com/

I like reading your blog in part because I'm from MA but transplanted in the Midwest for the last 6 years. I can't wait to get back to the Boston area.

Cheers,
Elinor
