Now, I will confess that this gift *just* got finished last weekend. It is sitting on my dining room table waiting to be mailed to my wonderful sister-in-law. Fortunately, this was an "extra" gift so I don't feel too bad about it being late :-)
Here's the link to the tutorial I used to create this ruffled scarf:
My scarf doesn't seem quite as "fluffy" as the tutorial picture, but I still like it. I think maybe my knit wasn't as soft and stretchy as hers...or maybe my inability to cut the pieces of knit in a straight line hindered me ;-) Either way, I hope my SIL likes it!
