Knitted Ruffle Scarf

Back when I was making gifts last year, I tweeted a picture of this scarf in progress:
I knitted this for Big Nanna B but unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the finished item. Well, at least I think I did. I can't find it anywhere. I had quite a few impressed faces at the site of this scarf as people assumed that it was a very complicated item. Of course I was completely honest and told them that it was one row of 9 stitches knitted over and over and it was in fact the kind of yarn that made the ruffles; nothing to do with my knitting skills, I can assure you of that.

I loved the finished item so much that I decided to make another for a friend. This time, black with sparkles.
I love it and although it's way down the list. I would love to do one for myself.  The yarn I used for both of these was Rico Can Can Disco Yarn Scarf Wool. The top one was red mix and the bottom, glitter ruffle black and silver. The range of these yarns it amazing with many different colours, shades, mixes, with or withput glitter, different lace effects, some with tassel things on; the list is endless.

I will attempt to provide a small tutorial on how to knit with this yarn. It is so simple and easy and I would urge anyone, even knitting novices like myself, to have a go. They knit up extremely quickly and make great gifts. 

I hope this has provided at least a small bit of inspiration for your handmade gift list! 

Happy yarn hunting!
