Yes You Can Knit with the Can-Can Yarn!

I am going to admit something you to… I love the idea of knitting, but I hate complitated patterns where you have to memorize stuff.  No thank you.  But, I want more than just a simple knitted scarf (which by the way, is the only thing that this knitter can make: scarves.) So how do you spice it up without going nuts?  Well, I have discovered that you need to look to your primary material: your yarn.

I have come across what is called here in the UK the Can-Can yarn. The yarn is essentially a netting, that when knitted makes ruffles…automatically!

See netting of the yarn?  That’s where the magic lies… 

To create a scarf, cast on about 8-10 stitches on size seven needled just like normal.
