Cotton Candy

Ta! Ta! I finished my ruffle scart last nite. I'm loving it. I felt like I'm wearing a string on cotton candy around my neck. Do you think it is overly done? This is probably one of the most girly thing I've made.

Pattern : Puppyarn Company - Let's Knit Series Autumn & Winter 2004-2005
Yarn : 21/4 ball of Kid Merino in Blush
Needles : size 4 crochet hook

I highly recommend kid merino if you like to make a ruffle scarf youself. It is so soft and doesn't itch at all when you wrap it around your neck. Kid merino comes in many yummy colors and they even have the printed version if you like them. I honestly think it's worth a try, consider this lace weight yarn cost only half the price of ksh.

Anyways, I just stumbled across a very cute capelet in garnstudio free pattern site. I'm ithching to cast on another new project. Well, I know I'm not suppose to, since I still have a few unfinish projects lying around. But who cares huh? There's no knitting police and I don't think anyone is going to give me a ticket for having too many projects. Have a great weekend and happy knitting.

It’s gorgeous!! I don’t think it’s overly done at all. It looks great with a simple, clean-cut top like the one you are wearing.

Oh! I love it! It turned out so pretty! So feminine and pink and ruffly, it's perfect. I am glad to hear it isn't itchy, now you can get lots of wear out of it.

It looks so light and pretty. That's also a pretty T that you are wearing. I would love to knit something with raglen sleeves and a scoop neckline like that.

How beautiful. I love soft pink. Definitely not overdone and sometimes we need something a bit 'girly'.

Love your ruffle scarf! It's the perfect amount of femininity. I know what you mean about kid merino! I've made a scarf with the stuff too.

I think it's girly-perfect. I'm not a 'girly' person, but when I saw this on the curly wurly blog, it literally made me exclaim with glee. It is such a perfect example of its 'type'.

To the Remarkable Vanessa
(whose every project is a joy to behold)~
I've admired this so often it's become an obsession. I've a relatively novice crocheter, and
have made far too many scarves, including dozens of "whirly" patterns. I've searched everywhere for this one, but nothing comes close. The pattern book you cite is available only on Amazon Japan...for over $60. Gotten close to madness, but reigned in by the language barrier (thank goodness!) Is there ANY way, ANY place to purchase this single pattern? Many thanks for the sheer pleasure of seeing your work.

oh my......deeeeelightful....

I've been researching ruffle scarves for 3 days and this one is the most beautiful by far!

I, too, have been searching high and lo for the pattern but to no avail.

Any suggestions?
