I'm working through the lovely yarns in my stash. This ruffle scarf is crocheted in Rowan RYC - a mix of 64% Extra Fine Merino Wool, 10% Angora, 24% Nylon, 2% Metalic. It's really soft and non-itchy so makes a lovely soft and warm scarf.
It would make a great addition to and evening or daytime outfit, especially if you don't want a bulky scarf covering up your glamorous top.
This scarf is really easy to crochet - here's how:
Use a crochet hook slightly bigger than recommended for the yarn weight - I used a 6mm hook with aran weight yarn. For the short scarf I used 1 x 50g ball, but you will need 2 x 50g for the longer scarf.
Chain 101 for a short scarf or 151 for a longer scarf. Turn.
Working from 2nd. chain from the hook and double crochet (dc) into each chain (100 sts/150 sts). Chain 2, turn.
Two dc into each dc of previous round (200/300 sts). Chain 2, turn.
Two dc into each dc of previous round (400/600 sts). Chain 2, turn.
Two dc into each dc of previous round (800/1200 sts). Fasten off and weave in ends.
Et Voila! Your elegant ruffle scarf is ready to wear. If you need a last minute pressie for someone, you could whip this up in an evening. Good luck, I'd love to hear how you get on!! You can add a comment or email me (through 'My Profile').
P.S. This one's for sale in my etsy shop, for those who can't crochet - I love it, so I'm making myself one too as well as more in different colours.
