accessorize

ruffles from scarf style

knit project: scarf style - ruffles
difficulty (1-5): 1.8
size: 86 inches long
yarn: ac moore's fantasy yarn, 100% alpaca in cream, 3 balls
knitting specs: US 6 dpn


i do not own a lot of accessories in my wardrobe, but every now and then, i do love wearing some interesting pieces that would complement my outfit. ruffles play such an essential role in this season's vintage theme, and luckily, after more than six months, i have completed this scarf just in time.

cream, my favorite color, is both classic and versatile. the muted palette really gives an unspeakable warmness when worn with rich gold tones. 100% alpaca yarn is used for my ruffles and i just love the softness of this fiber. though blocking is probably not necessary but i steamed it lightly to smooth out the short rows and to open up the curling edges a little.

this was not the most interesting project, turning the scarf back and forth was time consuming and slow in progress. however, this was a perfect mindless project and quite forgiving when an error was made. i probably have done a couple short row turns incorrectly but as you can see, the scarf turned out just perfectly.

love the scarf. and i may start to accessorize more. ruby red earings, crystal drop pendants, here i come!

wrap it once, wrap it twice, it is nothing but full of ruffles!

You've done it again, this scarf looks so good on you, with that outfit. Bring on the accessories! Suddenly I feel that I need a cream ruffley scarf :)

Blossom, the scarf is gorgeous on you!!!! Yay, now you have a beautiful scarf for the winter!

You're right, a cream alpaca ruffle scarf is just exactly what you needed! It's so beautiful on you.

That's a cute scarf, and I like your silky camisole.

That first pic is beautiful! Love the scarf.

I like the scarf and the top too... Nice!

Oops! Missed out the one on accessories! I think this will look really good with a long crystal drop necklace, if not just a long chandelier like earrings in yellow or brown...

It looks lovely! I might be inspired to knit one myself after seeing how pretty yours looks. :)

gorgeous ruffles version! i admire anyone who's managed to finish this scarf - i got so sick of it i cast off after just one meter...

Great FO Blossom. I don't think I would have the patience to knit all those rows, but yours paid off in the end. It's beautiful.

gorgeous scarf blossom. i love how it looks. i have heard so many people complain about how boring it is that i haven't bothered to try making it for myself....hmmm maybe next winter!
