Rerun

What I'm about to show you is the equivalent of a rerun. You're probably wishing I'd show some new, exciting project, instead of something I've knit before. Well, this is all I have to show today, and I do love it. The first was gifted to a friend at Christmas...and now I've made it again, for me!



It's the infamous multidirectional diagonal scarf, knit with two skeins of Noro Blossom. Just knit 'till it's (almost) gone, add a ruffle to each end, and voila! Instant warmth.

This is a great gift scarf because it goes fast, yet the pattern is a bit more interesting than a basic garter or stockinette scarf. The Noro lends itself especially well to this pattern, making the neat triangles of color.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming!

I love this pattern. I think it knits up faster than just plain old garter anyways AND the ruffle is a perfect finishing touch!

oh! That is the best one I've seen! Love love love the ruffles.
Your blog is inspiring me & I already have too many projects! Yikes!

I've been knitting these scarves, but had never thought of a ruffle. How did you do it? I picked up stitches across and then increased one in every stitch, but it doesn't really *ruffle,* it's just wider ... I've done it and ripped it out twice now, so I thought I'd ask. :)

Hi Lesli,
I love your multidirectional scarf and also some of your felted bags. Where did you find the directions for the "pink lady" bag?
I'm of course into way too many projects , but after a winter of making many scarves I'm looking to make bags. I made 1 and can't wait to make others!
