Knitting Scarves with Ruffle Yarn
January 16, 2014
Ruffle yarns have been around a while now. I know I have knit a lot of scarves with them in the last two or three years. I knit so many I kind of got tired of making them. Although they are an easy thing to work on especially during my knitting meeting night once a month.
Recently I designed a new scarf that has the ruffle yarn just on the edge and the rest of the scarf is knit with a worsted or sport weight yarn. The one below I made for a gift for a family member that is an MSU fan.
The idea of making a knit scarf design came to me when a lady requested a pattern for one. I have had a pattern design for a crochet version for a while but not a knit version. The crochet scarf is in the photo below – in blue. My mom has this scarf and says whenever she wears it people stop her and ask her about it.
Any type of ruffle yarns can be used for the edging on these scarves. The white one above is a Boutique Sashay yarn and the blue one is Paton’s Pirouette yarn.
The other version I recently knit for a friend is done in team colors. Another great way to show your team spirit with a pretty ruffle scarf. This one is done in Texas Tech colors since her daughter is going there.
I am calling these scarves Spiral Knit Scarf with Ruffle Yarn Edge. They are really fun and easy to knit if you have basic knitting skills and are familiar with working with the ruffle yarns.
I have also been working on a lot of other new knitting patterns and crochet patterns. Please subscribe to my blog via bloglovin, email or RSS feed to receive updates on my latest patterns.
Have a great day!
This is so cute! We don’t knit, though K has thought about learning it. This scarf is very classy looking! Thanks for linking to Snickerdoodle Sunday!
Thanks for linking up at Sweet and Savoury Sunday, I’m the new co-host and would love for you to link up this weekend. I’d love to be able to knit, your scarves look great!
Thank you Laura! I will check out the link up this weekend. I followed you on bloglovin – would love a follow back if you get a chance. Thanks.
These scarves are so cute! I love both the crochet and the knitted version. I haven’t crocheted or knitted in so long, I miss it!
Thank you! I crochet or knit pretty much every day. I have been for the past 10 or more years, I think. If I am not doing that then I am sewing. I love to create things.
