Mendocino Ruffle Scarf

Last summer I spent a wonderful weekend on the Mendocino Coast, one of my favorite get-away spots. I stopped in at the Mendocino Yarn Shop and ended up getting a quickie lesson on how to knit one of those ruffle scarves that have become so popular lately. It's easy and fast to knit, two of the things I look for in a knitting project.

The yarn is Katia Triana, and it looks like this when you buy it:

And it looks like this when you pull the strands apart:

The trick is to knit in to the spaces along the edge of the yarn. Here is a good YouTube tutorial. I wouldn't worry too much about a lifeline like she recommends-- mistakes blend right in to the ruffles, which is another nice thing about this pattern.

The owner of my lys was showing me this yarn a few weeks ago, it really is a cool yarn.
And that is one beautiful model you have there Stacy, the scarf is perfect with those stunning eyes of hers.


Look at Lily's huge, blue, & pretty eyes! She is sure growing up!
Pretty scarf, Stacy!
Merry Christmas!
