Completed! Ruffle Scarf . . . I think it’s glorious


I have completed my Ruffle Scarf.  \o/  Finally.  It turned out much bigger, and heavier than I expected it to.  The edging added a lot of weight.  As to that . . . I changed my mind on the edging pattern.  Again.  And, other than being a pain-in-the-ass to steam block, I am quite happy!

I really didn’t know what to expect after blocking.  I have never made anything quite like this before.    Here are before and after pics:

Here, some close ups while steam blocking . . . I guess I am not quite the ‘master’ at short rows . . . yet.

Here, some more miscellaneous pics.  (I always think I take too many)

Here, again . . . my go-to book for edgings

 

This has been a very fun project for me, and I am kind of sad that it is finished.  I will get to wear it a few times before the weather really warms up though!  Thanks for being there for me to share!  Hope you have had a happy Sunday . . .
