Two Ruffle Scarves, Knitting Works In Progress . . .

This has been some really good practice doing short rows, including the ‘wrap & turn’.  I have actually been having a lot of fun with it!  Not sure if you can tell, but it is still on the needles.  I am not quite sure how long it is supposed to be . . . I have misplaced the pattern.  :p

I am very happy with how it has turned out so far.

Now, my idea is to fancy it up a bit with a border in a nice contrasting color, like pink, or peach, or . . . burgundy, or . . . I can’t decide.  Maybe even work it in some mercerized cotton thread!  I think I have decided on a pattern.  A crochet pattern to be exact.  I am very excited!  I have used this book before, on the border of my green triangle shawl.

This is a very comprehensive book, with a ton of great designs.

Well . . . maybe I have decided on two patterns.  Tell me what you think about these:

I really like this one. But I was thinking of maybe altering it just a little, with longer chains in between . . .

And this one I like, just because of the little flowers.

I have enjoyed this pattern so much, I started another!  The yarn I am using is absolutely fabulous.  Soft and drapey.  It is 65% Bamboo Fiber – 27% Cotton – 8% Nylon.  Made in the USA  by Kollage Yarns.

(hmmm, I went to the website, and it appears this yarn is no longer available.  But there are many other fantastic choices . . . )

So, there you have it.  This is what has been taking up a lot of my knitting time.  Everything is blooming and warming up nicely here in my neck of the woods, so I probably won’t be wanting to wear these for a few months.  Let’s not think about Fall yet, it’s barely Spring!  (And, I hope it’s not still snowing wherever you are.)

  1. Cute! I love knit-crochet combo projects. Short rows are super fun too.
