Ruffle Ribbon Scarf

Chiquita recently did something that she has not done in years. She requested a handknit item. She saw one of those ruffle scarves at Michaels and nonchalantly mentioned that she wouldn't mind one of those. You know, like you do when you are a teen.

I don't have a lot of brain these days. (Did I mention that I started taking graduate classes again?) Garter stitch is still within my capabilities though. And so after a day of knitting, we have this selfie:

Yarn:  Red Heart Boutique Ribbons
Yarn Supplier: Jo-Ann Fabric & Crafts
Needles: US 9 / 5.5 mm
Pattern: garter stitch, 6 sts wide

This ribbon novelty yarn is weird stuff. I knit every other space. The teen seems happy, although I am not thrilled by how the metallic threads seem to get caught easily.
