I'm usually not a fan of knitting scarves but I bought the book Scarf Style after seeing that I wanted to make several of them! I have made 3 already, 2 for Christmas gifts and one for myself.
The first is Ruffles. It took less than 4 balls of Cashmerino and is really long, about 92". I'm only 4'11! I did it in my team's colors (Kentucky) for wearing to games and rushed through it so it would be done in time for the last football game at the end of November. It kind of blends in with my shirt here but I love this picture because of my sweetie little dog.
I did another Ruffles as a gift for my best friend. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift but I didn't finish it until recently. I'm horrible I used 3 skeins of Berroco Softtwist. It's shorter than the other, about 66" long, but this second one seemed to take forver to knit, after having done one already, so I didn't start another ball.
For a work Secret Santa, I drew the name of someone who makes jewelry so I knew she'd appreciate something handmade. Backyard Leaves was the scarf I really fell in love with in the book, and she'd be a perfect recipient. I used 3 balls of Plymouth Suri Merino which is super soft and nice to work with. It's about 70" long. I am crazy about this pattern! This is only the first half of it but it shows off the pattern better than some of the other pics I took. I did weave in ends.
