I made this little ruffle scarf a few days ago. It's made from a thrifted skirt that I cut into long strips, then joined them all together. Then to create the ruffle I cut some thin elastic 2/3 of the total length. I pinned the elastic at either end and then stretched it and pinned in in the middle. While the elastic was stretched out I sewed it down the middle of the scarf with a zigzag stitch to create the ruffle. It seemed a bit thin once I was finished and a little longer than I anticipated so I folded it in half (wrong sides together) and stitched it together down the middle, perfect with it doubled over it adds another layer of ruffle. I like that it's nice and light weight, not too snug. Ideal for the warmer days of spring ahead or on cooler summer nights.
