This fully ruffled scarf is inspired by Norah Gaughan's design: Osprey. A generous ruffle is picked up and knit along the
edge of a narrow ribbed scarf. The styling possibilities are endless.

about 4 sts/ in, 5.5 rows/in over st st on US #11
Using #10 needle, cast on 20 stitches. Work in k1,p1 ribbing for 60 inches. Bind off in rib pattern
and do not cut yarn. Pickup and knit along the long edge of scarf one stitch in every row. (yes, it's a lot of stitches, I
didn't count them)
Row 1: *p1, purl into front and back of next stitch* repeat * to * to end. This increases the number of stitches by half.
Don't count them. Change to #11 needle.
Row 2: knit
Row 3: purl
Continue repeating rows 2 and 3 until there's not enough yarn left to complete a row. Do not bind off in the traditional
way. Work this modified bind off: start at the end where the yarn is not. Slip 1, *slip another stitch, pass first slip
stitch over second*, repeat * to * until all stitches have been bound off. Use attached tail to fasten off.
Wet block if desired.
