Customer Creation: Carol’s Ruffle Scarf



Here is the lovely Carol modeling her crocheted ruffling scarf out of Madelinetosh Pashmina if Forestry.  Carol chose a soft, drapey yarn making her scarf flouncey and flowy.  Carol’s a knitter as well and learned the skills for this project through our Crochet 101 class.

The pattern, Spring Frills, is available for free online.

$37, 330 yards, hand-wash, 5-5.5 stitches per inch

Tibetan Cloud Worsted is gracefully soft and incredibly warm.  Think about it.  Don’t yaks live in cold climates?  Their insulating fur can do the same for you — keep you nice and toasty!  Try this yarn out for its softness, warmth and durability.  You will not be disappointed.





$22, 330 yards, hand-wash, 6-6.5 stitches per inch
