I’m partial to a ruffle here and there. Nothing overdone. Just a little fluttery something on the most minimalist outfit adds glamour that you can toss off when you revert to your Garbo (I just want to be alone) mode.
The Lulu Scarf in my book wasn’t intended to be a ruffle. It was an experiment with geometry. What resulted was a feminine, undulating shape that is part shawl, part scarf, and can be warn several ways.
Lulu is shown in blue Kidsilk Haze in the book. Here it’s knitted in the beautiful taupe color 590-pearl, and with a slightly looser gauge.
Here are the ways:
regular scarf style
capelet style (the little gold crocheted bag she is peeking into is by Lisa Toland)
and beauty pageant
It seems I’m not alone in liking a diagonal ruffle. When checking out the spring collection of my favourite designer, Dries van Noten, I saw this
and then, there’s this
see what I mean about a little fluttery here and there?
