Shawl with the little ruffle
I worked this up in a big hurry after casting on. It has been done for about two weeks (finished in plenty of time for the Fall Show and Tell).
I am deeply in love with this color combination, mustard and turquoise. I had my hand on a different color for the ruffle, but in my mind's eye I really had my heart set on this color of Berroco Ultra Alpaca. The knitter whose shawl I am emulating had a much larger ruffle, probably 4 inches deep, but I only had about 80 g of yarn at my disposal. I have a strong feeling that the bigger ruffle may take as much yarn as the body of the shawl.
Wanna buy a pattern on sale?
