This ruffle yarn seems to be very "in" currently. I picked up some this summer from Finland. In fact, the brand I bought is a German yarn, which is pretty funny: travelling to Finland, buying German yarn and bringing it back to Germany :) But at that time, I had not seen that yarn here. Now it's everywhere!


So I made a scarf, too. I cast on 8 stitches, and knit until I had two balls used up. The result: a very ruffly, ca 180 cm long scarf.


Not sure I'll keep it though, I'm not sure where to wear it... I think I'll let it "marinate" over the winter (the scarf is very light and not very warm) in my closet and see what I feel about it in the spring.


Have you tried this fashion yarn already?

I'm not a fan of the ruffly yarn stuff. I thought I liked it until I knit with it. I'm going to give the one I made as a gift. It may not be for me, but I do have people that it would make a good gift for. :)

This yarn was a bit tricky for me as a beginner, it kept sliding off my needles every time I put it down, until I put needle caps on. Now I know what those things are for! It came out cute though.
It was frustrating to work at first until I got the hang of keeping the right tension to easily pick up the top loop from the "web" and knit the stitch. Now I wonder what the fuss was all about!
