Has anyone made a scarf with the Loops & Threads Florence yarn? I bought the beautiful brown with white polka dots silky fabric with the yarn loops at the top to knit. However the loops are very long and the yarn shows when trying to make the ruffled scarves like you do with Sashay. Any help would be appreciated. Zasu

Hi Zasu! Yes I bought some recently and have knitted up several scarves with it. I totally love it! It knits up quickly and looks great! You knit it up just like a Sashay ruffle scarf. I have done it casting on 3, 4 and 5 stitches. All look very pretty just some longer than others. It's really a personal preference if you ultimately want the scarf to wrap around (cast on 3) or just hang down (4 or 5). In addition to the white/brown polka dots, I also got some of the black and white ones and they look great too. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine.

Thanks Callie's Mom! I had tried the 5 and 4 stitches per row and the ruffles were so large and stood up like a clown collar. I had started the 3 stitches per row and looks like this will work great. Thanks so much. Zasu

I have made only 2 scarves because that was all the yarn I could find. I can not find it anywhere. Are there any others and where is it sold.
Thanks

Not sure whether there were other colors. Red Heart Boutique Sassy is a fabric one without the yarn at the top. The holes to knit are a lot smaller. I had planned to buy that in the first place. The sassy comes in polka dots and animal prints. I have seen that in JoAnns and online. Good luck. Zasu

Oh my thank you sooooo very much! I was having the same issues!!! My ruffles are too big and the whole thing ended up too short. I was using 6 stitches. I'm going to try 3 now!

That was my first try also. Not only was it so short - it stood up like a clown collar!! Ridiculous. Even four stitches was too much. Enjoy!

If it has a pattern on the back for chevron cowl would you please pm it to me. I want that pattern and cannot find it. It is supposed to be on the back of a loops and threads label.
thank you

There is no pattern on the back of the Florence label. There is a cowl pattern on a free card @ Michaels using Patons Pirouette. It also references a video/tutorial for Pirouette yarn at www.patonsyarns.com/PatonsPirouette . Hope this helps.
