Decreases for ruffle don't make scarf narrower
I used Madelinetosh Pashmina and sizes 6 and 8 needles.
The main problem is that despite going down to 36 stitches from 109, the ruffle isn't as gathered as the photo with the pattern plus the width is around 11 inches instead of 6.5 inches.
The gauge (which I got when I did a swatch) is 22 stitches per 4 inches.
The pattern is the Nina Scarf by Louisa Harding from her book Knitting in the Details. I'm making it without beads. Thanks.
