Working with Patons Pirouette, a crochet ruffle scarf.
I was avoiding working with any of these ruffle yarns, had no intentions of ever working with it UNTIL I took my friend to the yarn store and she picked up two balls of Patons Pirouette. For this type of yarn I did not find any crochet patterns, only knit and I am not about to tear the house apart to find knitting needles!
When working with this pirouette yarn, on the ball it looks like one really thick strand of yarn until you take it off and open it up to find a mesh like pattern. The spaces below marked with blue stars will be your working spaces where you will work your stitches.
I came across this youtube tutorial of how to crochet a sashay ruffle scarf and started working up a scarf just as shown in the video, starting with a ch 6 with a US K10/6.50mm. By the time I was finished working up the first ball of pattern I knew I wasn’t going to have a long enough scarf with only 2 balls of yarn, it would only work with a 3rd ball. (If you would like to work with 3 balls, I would suggest working 5 sts, and you will end up with approximately a scarf that is 60-70 inches) At 8$ a ball of yarn, I frogged the scarf and started over with the following…

Yarn: 2 balls of Patons Pirouette Sparkle Yarn.
Hook: US K10/6.50mm
Finished scarf Length: Approximately 70-72 inches.
I start working in the 6th and 5th working spaces, first 2 ch’s are worked through 2 layers of yarn.
Ch 4, turn.
Rnd 1: sc in each ch across, turn (4 sc)
Rnd 2+: rep rnd 1, when you are ready to add in new ball line up 5 working spaces of your new yarn with the last 5 working spaces then work through both layers of yarn for 2 stitches, continue working until the end of your ball.
To finish off I used a heavy duty thread and weaved it through the cut edge of the yarn and tied it off in a few knots to the beg ch, trim off thread.
