Say farewell to winter! This ruffley scarf will add something fun to your spring wardrobe, while also adding to your warmth on those days you forgot to grab your coat because you were surprised by how chilly those gorgeous 40 and 50-degree days can still be.
This is a perfect beginner project. The simple slip stitch pattern takes the basic garter stitch scarf to the next level. The result is stylish, elegant, and creative. It is knit on large needles with laceweight yarn giving it a very gauzy feel.
Requiring 1 skein of Knit Picks Cloud, it beats the price of a scrunchi scarf at Target quite easily.

Gauge – Approximately 18 sts/4 inches in garter stitch. (As this is not a sized garment, perfect gauge is not critical)

Scarf Dimensions – 6×60 inches
