Self-Ruffling Scarves!

David calls this a Painted  Bunting scarf

Addicting!!!  Great gift idea!

You can either crochet or knit these.  I chose knitting, because it's just easier for me.  I think they are a little fuller when knitted.  No knitting or crochet experience necessary.  And the size of the needles doesn't matter. The best way to learn how is to google a video tutorial.  Once you watch someone do it, it's a piece of cake! Just be sure you purchase "self-ruffle" yarn.  Some of the common brands are Sashay, Starbella, and Flounce.  There are others, but these are the ones you'll mostly see at Michael's and Walmart.

1-16-13:  After making the ruffle sweatshirts today at JCRV, I had a little yarn left over.  Not enough for a full scarf, so I made a short infinity scarf.  I like it!

Springy colors

One of the rare occasions that I got to show Jerri how to make something!

She caught on fast
