Ruffle rib scarf

It took me quite a while to figure out what to make with the Blue Heron Beaded Wool. Although it is wool, and should have a bit of stretch, the binder used makes the yarn pretty unstretchy. I tried several patterns before I finally used the Misti Chunky Ribs & Ruffles Scarf pattern. This was a pattern some one used for a scarf for me, and I liked it.

To use it with the beaded wool I had to make some modifications to the pattern, since the pattern was written for a chunky yarn, and beaded wool is worsted. The pattern repeat is 4+3 so, I cast on 108 stitches.

When done, this gave me a scarf that was 5 inches wide, and 60 inches long, using one ball of yarn.

I like the way this turned out, and I hope Jinann likes it too!
