Ruffles and finishes

Another Christmas gift finished!



And the debate about *how* to finish ends with this detail



I tried fringe...too sparse. Crocheted loops...not right. Then the ruffle...ahh..that's what I like!

Hope my friend likes it, too. Time to package it up and off to the Post Office!

Leslie,

Love the scarf and have made one, but need to know how you did the ruffle. Thanks

Judith, I just picked up stitches along the edge, then knit one row. On the next two rows, knit into the front and back of every stitch. Bind off on the following row. That's it!
