To make a ruffle scarf, use a fishnet weave yarn to knit the length of scarf desired. Stretch out the weave, and knit the entire length before binding off and hemming the edge of the scarf.
- Prepare the yarn
Untwist a length of specialty brand of yarn. Look for yarn with a fishnet weave, and stretch out the weave.
- Cast the yarn on
Locate the end of the yarn, and fold it over 2 inches. Insert a knitting needle near the top of the folded edge. Weave it in and out the entire 2 inches.
- Knit the first row
Turn the yarn on your needle. Stretch the width of the yard out to expose the weave. Use the top edge of the yarn a few threads from the top of the weave to knit with. Knit the stitches on your needle, and then turn the yarn on the needle.
- Knit the second row
Stretch out more of the fishnet weave. Still working near the top edge of the yarn, knit two stitches. Leave 2 inches between the stitches. Turn the yarn on the needle again to begin a third row.
- Knit the scarf
Continue knitting two stitches near the top of the yarn 2 inches apart. Stretch out the weave as you go along. Continue this process until you achieve the desired length of the scarf.
- Bind off the scarf
Use the bind off technique to finish the end of the scarf. Cut the remaining yarn to 5 inches. Fold the edge 2 inches under, and sew it back to create a secure hem.
