Ruffles in Process


Greetings to all!! I am new to the Knit-Along, but have been working on Ruffles for about 4 months now. I love this pattern and this is my 3rd Ruffles scarf. This is by far the prettiest, and the whole reason I started knitting this pattern. I saw a mint green version of this at Hill Country Weavers in Austin, TX, and had to have the yarn and the book. What a grand ride it's been!!

Details: Yarn is Jolie, made in France by Valgaudemar, imported by Tahki. 70% French Angora 30% Merino. Color 5019 I don't know if I bought 4 balls or 5. I can't find the receipt and I've used at least one, but only have 3 balls in the work bag -- maybe my stash ate one. ;-)

Thanks for all the inspiration in your posts! I love seeing other's ideas!!!

:) Tara

Midwest Moonlight

Pattern: Midwest Moonlight
Book: Scarf Style
Yarn Brand:
Frog Tree
Yarn Name: Alpaca Wool
Yarn Colorway: 96
Yarn Content: 100% Alpaca Wool
Amount of yarn used: 2.5 skeins (1 ball = 130 yards)
Needle: Size 5 US (Denise)
Gauge: 5 stitches = 1 inch
Dimensions: Approximately 7" wide , 60" long
Project Duration: 06/05/2006 - 06/19/2006
Project Notes: I made some mods to the original pattern since I didn't want it so wide. I cast on 33 stitches instead of 49 so this made two repeats instead of three. I used a size 5 needle since that's what worked well with this yarn. BTW, I LOVE this yarn! It is so soft although some of the plies came apart because the needles have sharp points. This was just the perfect summer project since the yarn is very light and the lace effect is stunning.

Braided Mischief

Hi Lorena, do you remember me from your trip to Glasgow? Lady Eleanor is certainly looking good.

Here's my latest offering from Scarf Style - it's my version of Braided Mischief by Teva Durham. Rather than doing it in double strands of Felted Tweed, is it? I did it in one strand of Debbie Bliss Maya 100% wool, which I got for a reduced price from getknitted because it's discontinued. Added later- shade no. 14 I think.
I used 6 1/2 mm needles and three hanks. The scarf is pretty long, but I wanted to use up the yarn. It's really warm because of the yarn itself and the basketweave effect cable.


In the original pattern you are supposed to use a self-colour for most of it then occasionally use a tonic colour- I decided the variegated yarn had enough interest. This is a present for my husband as he really liked the last scarf I made him in the same wool.
I have recently got hold of Wrap Style. I definitely think Evelyn Clark's Shetland Triangle will be on the cards before too long. Posted by Picasa
