Ruffle Scarf Tutorial from t-shirt knit

I love soft t-shirt knit ruffles, but I can't buy enough t-shirts with ruffles on them for every outfit.  Soooooo..... I made a ruffle scarf that I can wear with any outfit!

* Cut a 1/4 yard , 60" wide piece of t-shirt weight cotton knit fabric
* Fold in half and cut the folded edge.
 *Sew a gathering stitch down the center of the fabric (using your longest straight stictch on you machine or even hand stitch a long running stitch), gather to form ruffles:

 *Sew a regular length stitch over the top of the gathering stitches to secure the ruffles:

Ta Da, you have a super cute and easy scarf to wear with any outfit!  I love mine so much I can't wait to make one in black, pink, whatever.  I hope you'll give it a try.  I saw a similar one in the store after I made this for $25.  This cost a total of $2.50!
