ruffle scarf

Before school holidays started I began a new commuting project – the Ruffled Scarf from the Crochet Noro book.

This was perfect for a commuting project. Other than the ruffles on the end, it’s just a one row pattern. Very little thought required!  And it grew incredibly quickly! I was rather surprised. The yarn is Noro Taiyo Sock, and I crocheted it with a 3.5 mm hook. Rather than do the double ruffles on the ends, I just crocheted a single ruffle on each end. I wanted to keep the scarf as long as possible from the one ball of yarn, and those ruffles use up quite a lot of yarn in comparison to the mesh pattern in the body of the scarf.

If you are looking for a simple scarf to make as a gift, this pattern and yarn would be perfect. The colour changes do all the work for you really! I’ve got another ball of this yarn in a different colourway, which will also become a commuting project scarf. But in a different stitch pattern, I think.

If I were really organised I’d start thinking about building up a gift stash again – mine has been completely depleted lately. But I’m not that organised – or motivated. It’s all project by project as the mood takes me at the moment!

  1. love it Lara and also that top you are wearing, which I saw in the last post. That colour is just awesome. ( I for one, am happy to be heading into scarf wearing weather again)
