Ruffled Scarves

I seem to have a crochet hook hot glued to my hand these days! I recently made one of these lovely Ruffled Scarves from Erika Knight's Essential Crochet and fell head over heels in love with it so much that I immediately ran out to the yarn shop for more Encore worsted weight yarn and made a second one.

I love the flouncy, feminine, all over the place ~ drapiness of this scarf. It is the perfect combination of useful and beautiful. In all its largesse it is quite warm. I made them both rather long at 88 inches so they would have plenty of length to work for lots of sumptuous wrapping. I think they are the ultimate "Girlie" scarf.
Even Phoebe wanted to wear one before it was finished!

  1. Well Danette,
    As long as there is a cup of tea glued to the other hand - you're in business!

    My mum just made me a scarf very similar to that.

    1. Amen to that! And trust me ~ there is always a cup of tea glued to one hand!
      Cheers to your Mum for making you a nice "girlie" scarf!

  2. They are really beautiful and stylish. Now I want to make something similar. But it's so warm here in CA now, that I won't need a scarf until next fall.
    Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day.

    1. Thanks Olga! I wish it was that warm in Illinois. It is supposed to be 50 degrees tomorrow though. Yay!!!
      I was sick for Valentine's Day but still enjoyed a quiet evening with my True Love!
      Hope yours was wonderful,

  3. Oh! They turned out absolutely beautiful!
