Ruffled Knits

I am sure you all have seen those fun ruffled scarfs by now.  I had the hardest time finding the yarn  last year.  Now it seems I can find it everywhere!  Here are a few that I have started and one I have finished.

This is really, really easy to knit.

Step 1. Pick out the yarn that you like (so many to chose from now!).

Step 2. Use the size needles on the label.

Step 3. Loop on 5 - 10 stitches.  This will all depend on how wide you want the scarf.  I stuck with 5 stitches.  See photos for "loop on stitches."  I made that term up....not sure what you really call it!
 First "loop"

Bring the up and over the first loop and push through hole about an inch or so down. 
 Repeat until you have 5 - 10  "stitches/loops on your needed.
Here I have 5 "looped on" stitches.  Ready to knit!

Step 4. Knit every row until at the end of the yarn (leave enough to cast off).


Step 5. Cast off and weave ends into scarf.

Step 6. Wear it out and about!

These make great gifts and are very easy to make.  They also are not very time consuming, since it is a few stitches and all knit!  Happy crafting!
