Ribbed Scarf With Ruffles - Knit

Good morning,

Scarves provide warmth, comfort, and style so we can never have enough of them, can we?

This yarn is very fuzzy, light, and airy so without something to weigh down the ends, it could stick to your coat or sweater and the scarf just wouldn't hang nicely. I have never been a fan of fringe except in very special cases.  This yarn isn't right for making fringe anyway, but it makes lovely ruffles. 

So, here is a very easy pattern for a ribbed scarf with ruffles. 

Enjoy!  And, as always, I would love to hear from you.  Please feel free to leave a comment.
