This scarf is soft and light with a ruffle on one edge. It is very easy to knit.

Materials:
1-2 balls Crystal Palace Mini Mochi (50 grams/195 yards)
(sample shown was knit in color #121 “berry compote" with 1.5 balls)
Crystal Palace Bamboo Needles Size 5 or 6 needles or size needed to obtain desired fabric
(if you tend to knit tightly, use size 6)
Finished size: approx. 4" X 54"

Gauge: 11 sts = 4 inches in garter stitch
(The gauge is not important, scarf can be loosely knit or snugly knit. Do a swatch to see what feel you would like.)

Abbreviations:
k - knit, p - purl, yo - yarn over, k2tog - knit two sts together

Instructions:
Beginning on the ruffle edge.
Cast on 800 stitches loosely.
Work 4 rows in St st (K rows 1 & 3, P rows 2 & 4)
P row 5
Dec row: K2tog all across row [400 sts]
Work 4 rows of garter stitch (K all rows)
2nd Dec row: k2tog all across row [200 sts]
Eyelet row: K3, *K2, YO, K2tog* rep across entire length of scarf ending with a few K sts, 2-5).
Cont to work rest of scarf in garter stitch to desired width of scarf or until almost out of yarn.
Bind off loosely. (Use a larger needle (2 sizes larger than needle used for body of scarf) to bind off.
Binding off too tightly causes edge to bow and be stiff.
Wet scarf in warm water, roll in big towel and lay flat to dry. Block flat at approx. 4 inches width.

Note: In my version I scattered eyelets along every 6-8 rows as I knit to make the scarf more airy. This is optional.
If you want to place eyelets you place them every 5-10 sts apart by knitting a YO, k2tog in the garter stitch rows with 6-8 rows in between the eyelet rows.
