More Ruffle Yarns to Love!

Ruffle yarns have been such a big hit this season! It's a wide ribbon yarn that ruffles as you knit allowing you to create a flouncy fun scarf in a matter of minutes. 

Now there's a new kid on the block, and this girl's a bit on the frilly side. Meet Lacey, a fun new lace ruffle yarn from Berroco. It also knits up fast and one ball makes a lovely scarf. Lots of fab colors, too!

Free Knitting Patterns: Super Easy Keyhole Scarf

Looking for a fun little quick knit scarf that you can whip up in a jiff? Then you'll love this Super Easy Keyhole Scarf. I knitted this in an hour using just 1-skein of Brunello Black Yarn

Super Easy Keyhole Scarf Free Knitting Pattern

Completed scarf measures: 36 x 4"

You will need: 
Cast on 8 stitches
Knit every row.
When almost out of yarn, bind off and weave in yarn ends.
The stitches are loose and open, so no need to create a "keyhole". Place the scarf around your neck and insert one end into a hole in the scarf. After wearing the hole will make itself larger and it will be really easy to insert the next time.
