In the studio - symmetrical crochet ruffle; original design

Scarf, mixed fibers: cotton, acrylic, polyamide, crochet, size 3mm hook

This symmetrical ruffle emanates from the middle rather from one edge of the fabric, as all my other ruffles have done so far. I like the effect. It is a very long scarf, almost six feet, and it will remain this narrow. I did a very heavy half double crochet stitch as the final round, which holds the ruffle out rather than letting it collapse on itself. The texture and weight are very much like linen.
