I have had several comments and requests for a tutorial on my ruffled scarfs that I wear. So here it goes:
What you will need
2 yards jersey or knit material
thread to match
Cut 2 strips 6″ wide by 2 yards long. (for a double ruffle)
Place both strips together (so it appears like one)
Adjust your machines upper tension to +3 (for me that is moving the dial to the right as far as it will go)
Adjust your machine stitch to 4.8 or something close to that.
Stitch one row down the center of the scarf, making sure to back-stitch about every 8″ or so to ensure your ruffle stays in place.
It should come out of the backside of your machine looking like this. (here you can see the two layers)
Repeat this 2 more times one on each side of the middle seam. Try to put the stitching between the middle and the edge of the scarf. I don’t measure, just eye it, when it ruffles you won’t be able to tell if it is not exact. Remember to back-stitch as you go.
You can whip one up in under 10 minutes.
