Variation Scarf Knitting Pattern Download
The source of inspiration for this scarf was the love of things with frills, as diverse as exotic undersea creatures and flamenco dancers' skirts. Frills give the illusion of movement even when they are stock-still. The process of making the scarf is an adventure in three-dimensional knitting, too.
This scarf is knitted entirely from a silk/wool blend yarn. The first 5 stitches in each row are a simple lace pattern. The short-row wedges are soft and open. This gives the frill more actual movement. A simple sturdy crocheted picot edge is the finale. Because a fine crochet hook is used, and the yarn is laceweight, the picot trim is firm and magnifies the ruffled effect.
