Have you ever seen someone knitting a beautiful garment and thought, "Oh, I MUST make that!"? That's what went through my head when I saw someone knitting a gorgeous ruffle scarf. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that it was so easy, a beginning knitter can do it.
The secret is the yarn itself. The yarn is Patons Pirouette
, a ruffle yarn that is prepared in such a way that a simple knit stitch turns it into a scarf that turns heads and elicits compliments everywhere.
As soon as the Black Friday coupons came out, I scooted down to my local craft store and picked up a couple of skeins. I then went home to begin the project. To my dismay, I discovered the online instructions
were lacking in clarity and left out some important steps. So today's project is to offer you a new, improved set of instructions to knit this lovely yarn into a pretty, warm scarf for winter.
