Here’s a ruffled scarf in Tunisian crochet (from Cheryl Thies’ Tunisian Crochet Encore) that I’ll be teaching at Yarnify in April. It’s a good beginner pattern, made entirely in Tunisian simple stitch and extended simple stitch, but with short rows to keep it interesting.
Though not interesting enough to prevent me from deciding I’d memorized the pattern after one repeat and to toss the book aside, only to discover that I’d been working the final pattern row (meaning, every fifth row) incorrectly, in extended rather than plain simple stitch. I’ll present it to my students as an extra-ruffly pattern modification, as if I totally did that on purpose. They’ll never know!
