Ruffle Scarf

I have finished my ruffle scarf.  I purchased this wool while on holiday in Cambridge.  It is Rizos Katia and is one of the new type of yarn with a little space at the top to insert your needles.  It is quite a slippy yarn, so I was advised to knit it on circular needles and then it has less chance of slipping off. The yarn is manufactured in Spain and made from 98% acrylic and 2% polyester.  It comes in 100g balls.

Using 5.5 mm needles, I cast on 15 stitches and this size of scarf took approximately 2 balls of yarn.  There were some beautiful colours in it and the next time I would make it slightly thinner, maybe 10 stitches.  It knits up quickly and would make a lovely Christmas present.
