I am addicted to accessories: earrings, necklaces, hats, scarves, gloves, BAGs etc... Women can never have enough accessories. Am I right or am I right?
The other day I wrote about a new white&lilac cowl. Well, it is actually a scarflette and my favourite neckwarmer. Here it is:
Usually I don't wear purple, because I always thought, that it turned my skin too "pale". This ruffle yarn is leftover from the scarf I have knitted for my mother-in-law for Christmas. I love its colour and doesn't turn me white.
The white yarn is a very soft bulky yarn. It was originally bought for a cowl.
Let's see the pattern. This will be easy-peasy :)
- 1 ball of bulky white yarn ( e.g.: Schachenmayr Silenzio)
- 1/3 ball of ruffle yarn (e.g.: Steinbach Wolle Swing)
- crochet hook size 6-8 (recommended was 8, but I didn't have that size and my craft store was currently run out, so I used a smaller hook. It worked.)
- knitting needle size 6
- button (This is optional. I used a button on the rose to fasten the scarflette.)
I skipped this step :)
I always find risky to use white yarn with some dark colour. So I gave them a try. I knotted two little pieces of the yarns together and washed it. They saved their colours, so that's why I like german quality (plus these brands have quite a modest price).
st = stitch
ch = chain
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
* * = repeat
shell= 3 dc 1 ch. Worked into the space between two 3 dc shell groups.
1. row: ch 3 (count as 1 dc) and turn, 2 dc to the same stitch, 1 ch, * skip 2, 3 dc to the next st, 1 ch * this row ends with 3dc on the last st (= 7 shells)
2. row: ch 3 and turn * skip 2, 3 dc to the next st, 1 ch * end this row with 1 dc to the last st (= 6 shells + 1 dc and 3 ch on the edges)
3. row = 1. row
4. row = 2. row
Repeat 1-2 rows for 6 times.
The ruffle edges:
Start with 18 stitches.
With simple knitting knit 8 rows. Ruffle yarn has its own way of knitting, on Youtube you can find more useful video tutorials.
Sew on the ruffle edges.
I have already shared the pattern here. (See at the end of the post.)
