I'm knitting this scarf (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall03/PATTlatifa.html) and got to the end ruffles and this is what it says:

Double Ruffle:
These ruffles are knit in stockinette stitch. Be sure to pick up stitches so that the knit stitches correspond to the top of your scarf.
Bottom ruffle:
Pick up 33 stitches on end of scarf.
Row 1: knit
Row 2: purl
Row 3: knit into the front and back of every stitch (66 stitches).
Row 4: purl
Row 5: knit
Row 6: purl
Row 7: repeat Row 3 (132 stitches)
Row 8: purl
Bind off loosely.
Double Ruffle continued:
Top ruffle:
Pick up the same 33 stitches on end of scarf through bottom ruffle.
Row 1: purl
Row 2: knit into the front and back of every stitch (66 stitches).
Row 3: purl
Row 4: knit into the front and back of every stitch (132 stitches).
Row 5: purl
Bind off loosely.

Why are they different? I'm not sure what it's supposed to look like.

Thanks for your help.

It looks like you pick up one ruffle on the bottom and then pick up the same stitches from the other side. Maybe once one side is done, the reversal of the stockinette stitch will make more sense.

Thanks Ingrid,

What I'v done so far is the ruffles along the whole scarf except the ends.

Now, if I understand correctly (and also from looking at the picture), I should get one end of the scarf and make the "bottom ruffle" then go back to the same stitches that I've picked up at the base of the scarf's end and start another layer on top of the bottom ruffle called top ruffle. Right?

That sounds right. It says to do it through the bottom ruffle. I wasn't sure if you did it on the back of that one or not, but as I said, with it in front of you, you can see what's what.
