Marc Jacobs Inspired Ruffle Scarf
Designed by Alice Schnebly
This scarf is inspired by a Marc Jacobs scarf I saw a few months ago. The original was made from a natural colored linen/wool blend. I chose to make my version in the always economical Cascade 220 in a heathered natural color. Although, if you can find a worsted weight linen blend to your liking, I think it would make an even more fabulous scarf and would have a great feel and hold its shape nicely.
The scarf is cast on at the edge of the first ruffle, and worked in alternating stockinette and reverse stockinette sections and is bound off at the edge of top ruffle on the other end. Stitches are picked up for the six additional ruffles and each knit separately.
4 ½-5” width by 7 ½’ prior to blocking
3 skeins Cascade 220 Heathers (100% wool, 100 grams/220 yards), color #2441 River Rock; or approximately 640 yards of any other worsted weight yarn in desired color.

Body of Scarf:
Repeat 2 more times for a total of 4 ruffles, alternating between reverse stockinette and stockinette panels (Rows 1-10) before each ruffle. Also add 3 ruffles to the opposite end of scarf in the same manner.
