Ruffled Roses Scarf

Ruffled Roses Scarf, originally uploaded by Buxtrosion.

Ruffled Roses by Annie Modesitt

3 colors of Misti Alpaca Worsted and a partial ball of ONline Linie 194 Solo (a ruffle/tape yarn).
Pattern (free) available at Yarndogs. Or check the designer's site for a shop near you.

Mods/Notes- For me, the purl rows of the tape were the right side. Subbed dark green for red-brown yarn. No problems with stitch count. I think other people got confused because the stitch count for the center lace pattern is given. There’s stitches on either side of that for a garter stitch edging. I used this tutorial for a similar ruffle yarn to help figure out how to use it. Think whip stitch, not running stitch. I used the 3-needle bind off after figuring out how to graft in ribbing and then realizing that it would always be offset by half a stitch because the pieces were both knit in the same direction.

Ooh, a bunch of people tried to make that one at my LYS, but yours came out much nicer.
