Here is my completed Ruffles and Ridges.
I knit this from Kauni Effektgarn 8/2 (purchased from The Loopy Ewe).
I lightly steam-blocked it and it measures 68 inches long, and 11.5 inches wide. I used approximately 600 yards and a US3 needle.
Cat included for scale.
Here is Sharon’s completed Ruffles and Ridges:
Sharon knit hers from Lola Doodles Posh Sock (purchased from The Loopy Ewe). Her scarf is 58 inches long and 7.5 inches wide, unblocked. She used approximately 400 yards and a US5 needle.
I’m working on completing the pattern, which will have mods for creating a triangular shawlette, tips for using your entire skein of yarn by knitting by the weight of the skein, tips for blocking, and a tutorial for short rows in garter stitch.
The pattern will not be available until next week because I’ve made arrangements to do a photo-shoot for the pattern mid-week, so you’ll get photos of it being worn by a cute model instead of Gwendolyn.
No offense, Gwendolyn.
