This Ruffle Lariat is a long (literally) but easy project to knit when the weather is cold to remind you of warmer days ahead, or to give you something to work on and wear when it's warm outside.
The long ruffle is perfect to wear as a necklace or lariat, or loop it around your neck any way you like to add a little flounce to any outfit. The more daring could also use it as a belt.
Gauge is not critical for this project, but i got an average of about 6 stitches per inch with my thick and thin yarn.
Finished project is 1.5 inches wide and about 62 inches long.
Tip: To make the binding off go a little faster, I did a knit 2 together bind off, in which I knit 2 stitches together each time and then bound off those decreased stitches in the usual way. It's not at all necessary to do it that way, but it takes at most half the time of binding off the usual way (and when you've got 800 stitches to bind off, a little speed is a welcome thing!).
