For Christmas this year, I made over 25 of these frilly knitted scarves! The first few took about 4 hours each but after them I got the pattern down and they took about 1 hr 15 minutes. It's amazing what practice can do to your time.
The yarn is about 2 inches wide and so all you do is a very basic knit stitch back n forth. The instructions say to knit 6 stitches, but I like 7 or 8 to make the scar a little fuller. Most of mine were 7 stitches wide. Then you just knit the entire way, no purling, with a size 9 needle.
They were great to use as gifts and so much fun to make!
