Ruffly scarf

Yes, I am weak. I couldn't resist trying the second scarf as well. I'm not sure how long I actually worked on it as I was up and down, doing other things as well. It's actually not quite finished as I have several tails to sew in.

I left the tails on the picture because I wanted you to see that these are all places where I had to cut out bad spots in the yarn (knots and such). It's not a big deal, but I thought there were quite a number for about half a skein of yarn.

The pattern did go quickly with it being a category 2 yarn worked with a J hook. However, there were LOTS of stitches, so even though the work went quickly, it took a while to complete.

The instructions were pretty clear for the body of the scarf. I had to think a minute on the edging, but I think it came out pretty well.

Not sure if there is enough yarn for the knitted scarf. Perhaps one without the additional edging? I have read knitting takes less yarn than crochet, so maybe so.

Not sure what I'm going to do with these two scarves, but I am glad I made them. I hope future projects are as much fun to do.

The two yarns were not bad to work with though I wouldn't run out and buy  more of them. The red was fine but I'm just not a fan of boucle due to my poor eyesight.

Now back to the afghan I was supposed to be working on ...

Happy crocheting!


  1. The ruffly scarves are cute! Too bad you're finding knots in the yarn!

  2. Cute scarf. I've made 2 ruffle scarves. Gave one as a gift to my young niece; but not sure she liked it. They're quite stylish I think so was dissappointing to see she didn't even bother to try it on. I hate when you poor quality like that in a skein. What type of yarn is this. I didn't see that you said? Right you are knitting uses less yarn; but takes longer, it's just plain slower...even for the folks who are good at it.

    1. The yarn label only says Annie's Hook and Needle Club. It doesn't give a type. I wrote to them and they say they don't know. It comes prepackaged in the kit.
