I am trying to post the last of my winter projects before spring is here. So here is the ascot from Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts 2007.
This was a relatively quick project that offered the opportunity to try some new techniques. This incorporates short rows to give the scarf the width at the ends and bobles to finish off the ruffle. The hardest part was picking up 120 stitches to make the bobles.
I love this scarf! I used the recommended yarn Blue Sky Alpacas Melange which is wonderfully soft and luxurious. But beware I was short and had to substitute with a similar yarn to finish bounding off.
