I saw this thread from http://knittersreview.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=27751 and like the scarf so much.  Couldn't help it but cast on to try it out.  It is indeed a very interesting journey...  We call it Rachel's Ruffles.

Neat! I like how it spirals around the center, reminds me of DNA...

I've got 3 of these going at the same time.  What yarn did you use?  Did you block it when you were done?  How long did it take you?  How did you get the light blue edge?  It looks great! Smiley

I used Magnum Mist for the darker blue and Carressa for the lighter blue.  No, I didn't block it, looking at the pattern, i think i don't have to block - save me the trouble.   Grin

It takes me abt 5 hrs to do it.  I just knit all the way using the main color, then cast off using a lighter to make a contrasting edge.

Intend to make a few others to give out as gifts.   Cool

Thanks!!  I don't have it with me right now.  But I guess it is about 26 inches long.  I did it while watching tv and on my way to work.  Your motivation will come in when you start casting off.  I'm very amazed by the curling, even till now.  Can't wait to start more!

Quick, finish yours.  I can't wait to see it too! Wink

You know what I just realized, I've seen this pattern before.  The scarves I'm working on are Ruffles from Scarf Style, the one you did is an absolutely ingenious pattern I found when I was looking for a free version.  I printed it out because I want to make it but I haven't yet.  I'm going to have to try your version soon.

What a fantastic scarf! Is the yarn you used a light weight, or worsted weight? It came out so beautiful , -  i cant wait to make a few myself! Great job! ~ Grin

Oooh...I love it!  I saw this pattern a few days ago and want to make it using some Patons Divine that I have stashed.  I'm trying to figure out how to make it a bit less "ruffly" though.

The light blue edge is great!  I might have to try it with two colours.  It reminds me of DNA too!

*cough* after reading this thread a few hours ago, something posessed my hands.  I had been thinking about buying scarf style just for the ruffles pattern, but have held off so far.  In any case, I'm one row awy from finishing "Rachel's ruffles" and am getting impatient already!  I.want.to.cast.off.

(thanks for pointing out the pattern!)
