A Ruffle Scarf

I crocheted up this scarf for my dear friend Helen. I wanted to do it for Christmas, but that didn't happen. The next big thing would be her birthday, so... I decided to give it to her early, so she could use it now. I used this pattern from Lion Brand. It worked really well. Instead of using the suggested yarn, I used some pretty, variegated acrylic that I bought in Puebla. I double-stranded it and used a size 10 hook. The only other modification I made was making it longer. I was impressed with how many different ways it could be worn. I see many more of these scarves in my future.
