Ruffelina Frilly Scarves
Ruffelina by Bernat is a yarn that is marketed for Breast Cancer Awareness. It is a ruffle yarn and provides a very tight looking frill. Cast on only 6 stitches and you will get about 4 feet of scarf by the end with just one ball of yarn. This is really a no brainer and it’s a relatively quick scarf to work on.
Free Conventional Knitting PatternDistribution of this pattern is appreciated but please copy and post the link. Do not duplicate or charge for the usage of this pattern. You may create your own and sell what you make but this pattern is to remain free.
I recommend Size 5 mm or 8 USA Size Knitting Needles. I highly recommend wood knitting needles verses plastic or metal. The wood gives it more friction and doesn’t slide as easily.
1 Ball of 100 g or 3.5 oz of Bernat Ruffelina Yarn. With packaging, 1 ball = 1 full size scarf. Check your nearest retailer for this line of yarn.
Scarf seen above (4 Foot Length) can be up to 2″ Wide Solid, with mesh stretch to visually appear 4″ wide. Other people recommend more stitches than 6 like I am calling for but adding more stitches across will shorten the length of the scarf that you will get from the ball and make the scarf wider. I have found 6 stitches is plenty and provides a decent length.
Below is what the yarn looks like.
- Cast on 6 Stitches. To cast on, slip your knitting needles 6 of the loops that on are the thin edge.
- Knit using the outer loops only. When turning material, skip one loop as shown in the video. When working across the row, use each loop. The loops are so big that skipping one on the row would be a waste. I have a video showing this method. See below for Video.
- Knit back and forth until you get your desired length. Yarn ball will take you about 4 Feet in length.
- Cast Off and weave in the ends like you normally would in knitting. The last stitch, slide the remaining yarn through it and tie knot. The ruffle will cover the knot.
