A friend and I decided to do a scarf swap this year.  I chose the "Ruffles" pattern from the Scarf Style book.  It was a fairly easy knit, just a bit tedious.  The yarn was a Jo Sharp DK in Lichen.  If I knit it again I think I will pick a softer yarn, but in all it turned out great and my friend loved it.

Here I am modeling it in a very preggy state!!

That's a really cute scarf! I've seen a lot of them for sale in stores but have never seen one actually knit by someone! Good job!  Smiley

yes, i've been wondering that myself- there's a scarf like this at my LYS but i don't have the courage to ask the people there how they made it. it seems fairly simple (just socknite [wow i cannot spell]) but i'm still perplexed by it. .

It is a combination of stockinette and wrap & turns.  Once you get the hang of it the scarf knits up fairly quickly.

That looks great! I'm about 7 inches intoi one in cotton.  It looks really cute but the wrong side where I've knitted into the wrap stictch looks ugly. Did you have problems with this, I wondered if it might look better in wool rather than cotton because of this.

It is from the Pam Allen's Scarf Style book: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1931499543/qid=1105647657/sr=8-1/ref=pd_csp_1/102-5231806-2712160?v=glance&s=books&n=507846

Yeah the wool did hide a lot of sins that is for sure.  I found this web site that had some pointers on avoiding the wrap stitch issues. http://scarfstyle.blogspot.com/  I followed the following advice I found on the site - "SSK the wrap and the stitch instead of doing a K2tog - there is no ugly bump in the row!! I am slipping - first the wrap, then the stitch - knitwise onto my right needle than knitting both together" - and it worked just fine for me. 

Hope this helps.
