Pattern Description from Scarf Style: “Clever use of short-rows makes the outer edges of this scarf longer than the center ‘spine,’ creating a ruffle effect. Amanda Blair Brown made her scarf reversible by using smooth stockinette stitch on one side of the center line and textured reverse stockinette on the other. Another way to work this scarf might be to make each side of the ruffle in a different color.”
