Ruffle Scarf

Another way to wear the scarf. You can see the shape of the ruffles a bit better in this one…..

A bit about the yarn: The yarn used was Wendy Allegra which is 32% Alpaca 31% Acrylic 37% Polyester. Throughout the making of the scarf I was trying to decide whether I loved or hated it and, I’m sad to say, that I’ve finally come to the conclusion that it’s not very nice! Although it looks quite pretty in these pictures, for me, it has three major drawbacks. Firstly, I’m concerned that it’s a little bit too scratchy to wear close to the skin. I have quite sensitive skin, so this could just be me! Hubby says it’s fine but it’s definately not as soft as other yarns I’ve used. Secondly, it’s a bit more hairy than I’d have liked. Perhaps I’m just being picky (after all it was quite cheap!) but I’ve got some similiarly priced mohair which is far nicer. Finally, I wasn’t keen on how much the thickness of the yarn varies. At some points its close to laceweight and at others its more like DK. In some projects this could be a good thing, but not, I think, for this scarf
