Ruffle Shawl with a Dog and Daughter....



This is one of my favorite projects... Started to knit a shawl and wanted some ruffle and here they are.. will do more in sock yarn..The top one is  knit with Malabrigo Worsted (Deja Vu)and the striped one is MadelineTosh Merino*on a 10(2 sizes larger than I normally would knit the yarn with) to make it squishy. The larger needle also makes it hang nicely.
I like to wear it with ruffle in front, like a scarf(See dog and daughter photo below)

*Cobalt and Ginger for Tosh.
