Barb's Koigu Ruffle
Our accountant Barb Steinberg is a masterful weaver but claims she’s “not much of a knitter.” She arrived one month-end wearing this charming scarf and, when we asked for the pattern, she said she wasn’t quite sure what she’d done. Well, we took it off her, dissected it, wrote it up, and the now-famous Barb’s Koigu Ruffle has become one of our most popular patterns ever. “Not much of a knitter” indeed!
This stockinette stitch scarf is knit lengthwise. You start with 600+ stitches, do a number of decrease rows, knit straight, then do a number of increase rows. The finished dimensions are spot on for wearing loosely wrapped around the neck.
Approx. 6"/15cm x 22"/56cm; will stretch in length with wearing.
2 skeins Koigu KPPPM (175 yds/160m each); shown in Color 105D.
Or approx. 350 yds/320m of an equivalent fingering-weight yarn.
US 4 (3.5mm) 24"/60cm circular, or size to get gauge.
US 6 (4mm) 24—32"/60—80cm circular, or 2 sizes larger than size to get gauge.
