This ruffled scarf is cinched with a pair of satin cord drawstrings that are tied with double uni-knots (one of my favorite types of fishing knots). The scarf is knitted in a reversible ribbed pattern with regu-larly spaced short-rows to produce the ruffles along the edges. The holes created by the short-row turns provide eyelets through which the satin cords are threaded. Depending on how tightly the drawstrings are cinched, the ruffles contract from open and loose to a dense, thick mass. Tie it loosely around your shoulders for a little capelet, tighten the drawstrings a bit for soft ruffles, or cinch them all the way for a heavily ruffled collar or cowl.
