I was wondering what else I could use that ruffled yarn for. I've made so many potato chip scarves with it that I'm definitely ready for something new! This is cute and different. Being made top down is a plus so it can be tried on before it's finished. Thanks for including the schematic. It really helps me visualize the project.
