Filippi Scarf gone wrong!

Well over the past weekend while trying to finish the ending ruffle on my scarf my stitches went so wrong. I asked a friend at work to help me middle of last week and she did she did the first row of the ruffle while I watched and I planned to work the 2nd row. Well I did not increase the way I should have and could not figure out how to take the stitches back out that I had knit so how I am in a mess. I plan to take the scarf to work tomorrow and get my friend to help me rip out a few rows without doing to much damage. I sent a message to a friend on Ravelry because she had knit the same scarf and she told me to knit and purl in the same stitch for the increase to make the ruffle. I hope I can figure this out soon it is a great scarf and I have another very pretty bulky yarn to make another scarf in the same pattern. The pattern is from One-Skein Wonders 101 Yarn-Shop Favorites, edited by Judith Durant page 29. My work on the scarf will continue. I have 3 Bias scarves in various stages on progress and my Giant Pom-Pom Scarf still waiting on Pom-Poms. I hope to finish all of this over my nice long Thanksgiving Holiday. I hope I only have to work 2 days next week! I have asked for Wednesday off too and I am trying my very best to get all my work done so I can take the day off on Wednesday. That will be 5 whole days I have not had 5 days in a row off since December 2006. Happy knitting and crocheting.

I have had issues with my crochet and knit projects before too. I am glad you have somebody to help you with that. Enjoy your holiday and have fun!

Happy Thanksgiving Sweetie!

P.S. I got the first Stephanie Meyer book to read after hearing you talk about enjoying it. I am looking forward to listening to it soon.

Love,
Michelle

Hi! I'm knitting the same scarf for a gift to give on Thursday! I am at the end and don't understand how to do the ruffle???? Did you get it figured out. It is so beautiful. I hate to ruin it!
