I found this alternative to using the ruffled yarn in a scarf. It is a red heart project. I also thought that I could incorporate the smaller ruffled yarn into a skirt for The American Girl doll as well as a scarf shown in two manners. Found that there are many ways to use the material.
My first attempt at displaying any work!!
Just a regular wrap
Ruffled knit scarf
Beautiful work. i love the doll one and skirt. How did you do it. I imagine on the scarf-fewer stitches. But how did you get the ruffle on the skirt? Knit or crochet?
Great thinking. If I can ever get caught up with life, I hope to explore more options for these types of yarns. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for getting my creative juices flowing. I have several left over partial skeins from projects. think I'll play around. How did you attach them in the rusts and brown scarf.
Adding to the ends of a scarf is a great idea! I need to try that, too. Thanks for the pics-
Great ideas. I love the skirt and scarf.
that is really cute. but how did ya do then end of the scarf?
Wish I could say I thunk of it but my imagination is really good while actual talent less so. I found the pattern at a Red Heart site. www.redheart.com
ruffle me up or something like that. I'm having a terrible time remembering the actual title since I call it something different in my own head. If you can't find it PM me and I'll find it again and let ya know the actual name THEY call it.
Are there any American Girl doll patterns available for k- projects?
Actually I saw this skirt on their site and knit it up myself without a pattern...only took three rippppps to get the right size. Ladyfingers on this site has gaddillions of patterns that she shares with everyone. Just type in her name on search a whoa, there she is with all you could ever want to knitfor tha American Girl doll.
