finished 11/28, posted 11/29.
I used a US size-7 circular needle, rather then the called-for 8, as I’m a loose knitter (ahem). I didn’t worry too much about gauge, ’cause it’s a scarf, but may have gotten it right anyway. I used Berroco Ultra-Alpaca, which is a 50/50 blend of alpaca and wool. The color’s fabulous and underrepresented in my photo, sadly.
Modifications: I followed the pattern pretty exactly, with two exceptions: first, creating a more finished edge by slipping the first stitch of each row purlwise (with yarn held in front) and knitting the last stitch of every row (even on purl rows); second, I added a row of knit and a row of purl (yes, in stockinette) to the ruffle, ’cause it just didn’t look wide enough to me when I finished the rows called for in the pattern. Wider looks better in this case. A personal choice, and one you may not make, when you knit your very own Just Enough Ruffles scarf.
Oh, the pattern says you’ll need 215 yards of Malabrigo Merino Worsted to make the scarf. That may be true, but it took around 275-300 yards of the Berroco Ultra Alpaca. That meant two skeins, but they were only $8.50 each at my LYS, so it was still imminently affordable. And I still have a ball of pretty yarn to play with!
