A prezzie from the Last Minute Gift Fairy!

Ruffled or "Potato Chip" scarves are all the rage lately. Here is my take on the theme, free to share and of course, make a few for last minute gifts, stocking stuffers, grab bags, etc...And to add to the attraction it takes a day or less to make and only ONE skein of yarn!

One Skein Ruffled Scarf

(Feel free to share this pattern as long as the copyright notice is left intact!)

Size: Approx. 62" long

Gauge: Not critical

Materials: 1 Skein Lion Brand Homespun (Example was done in Candy Apple, #790-375)

1 pair size 15 (10 mm) needles

(A LONG circular works best as you will have close to 750 stitches on the needle by the end!)
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.

Cast on 90 stitches.

Row 1: Knit across all sts
Row 2: Increase in each stitch across (knit in the front and back of each stitch). 180 sts.
Row 3: Knit across all sts
Row 4: Repeat Row 2. 360 sts
Row 5: Knit across all sts
Row 6: Repeat Row 2 (720 sts)

Now, you can either A) knit one more row and then bind off or B)Bind off right after row 6, depending on how much yarn you have left and your personal preferences. After bind off, weave in all loose ends and you're done!

Variations: For a shorter scarf (ascot/accent length) cast on 75 or 80 sts. For a longer one, cast on 100. (Warning! This makes a VERY long scarf - close to 8 feet long!)
