A Week of Scarves! Day 3 - Ribs and Ruffles Scarf






This scarf knits up on big needles really fast and is done with one skein of Misti Chunky yarn. The little ruffle at the ends gives this a nice feminine look.

I've also made this scarf where I have doubled the width and added length to make this a more "winter hearty" scarf.
