I just LOVE this Ribs & Ruffles (http://www.mistialpaca.com/patterns.php?ic=3&tr&tr=22&type_pattern_id=5) scarf pattern!! I've made so many of them in all kinds of yarn and it always turns out wonderful ... and it's such a fast knit!

This one was done with 2 strands of RH Soft on size 13 needles - it's almost as soft as the Chunky Baby Alpaca ones I've done. The thing about using the acrylic though, is that it's wash and dry. I have several people on my list I know won't take care of an alpaca scarf.

And I made this one with 2 strands of some fine baby yarn from my stash - used size 10-1/2 needles. It's for my almost 4 yo niece. I "tied" the jingle bells on after I finished the scarf. I tried several different ways to attach them and this was the simplest.
