I am not that much into knitting and crochet, but off late I got bitten by the bug.
Of cause the projects are very simple, but non the less much fun.
A colleague came to work one day wearing a lovely boa like knitted scarf that I really liked.
I asked her to buy the wool for me and knitted my own.

It looks complicated because of the yarn that is used, but it is as easy as knitting a scarf with regular yarn.
The yarn is a sort of netted ribbon. It looks like this when you buy it.
There are several colors to choose from.
You knit on the edge of the ribbon. The rest forms the ruffles while you knit.
I used #7 needles and 2 balls of yarn. I started with 10 stitches (is that the right word?).
I knit tight, so my scarf is a bitt shorter.
I found two nice films on Youtube here and here explaining how to knit the scarf. The second film is in Dutch.
If you have any questions, just ask away!
Have a nice weekend!
