Frill Seeker by Estelle Yarns is a new type of ribbon yarn. It is knit by placing the needle into the yarn (deliberately splitting the yarn!) and then the yarn blossoms out to form a row of frills. It sounds odd but it creates a stunning scarf. This yarn is 100% acrylic, and there is a pattern below. One ball makes a scarf about 6ft long by 6 inches wide (190 x 16 cm) so this yarn offers great value.
We recommend that you do not pull the yarn from the centre of the ball - unwind it from the outside and it will be easier to work with. To join this yarn, just overlap the two yarns by about 4 inches (10 cm) and knit them both for 2 to 3 stitches.
All shades are variegated except 002 which is black.
Tension: Knit on a 5.5 to 6 mm (US 9 - 10) needle.
Cleaning: Hand wash, dry flat.
Available in a 200 gram (7 ounce) hank.
Contains approximately 60 metres (66 yards.)
Materials: 1 ball Estelle Frill Seeker
6mm needles (preferably with sharp tip)
To cast on, hold end of Frill Seeker spread out in front of you with the
ball to your left. Insert needle from front to back approximately ¼ inch
from top edge. Bring needle over yarn and insert again from front to
back approximately 1½ inch to the left. Repeat this step another 7 times.
9 sts total.
Turn work. With right needle insert tip through loop on left needle (on first row only it may be easier to insert needle through back loop). Unfurl a length of Frill Seeker and insert tip of left needle approximately ¼ inch from top of strand approximately 1½ inch from left needle. The rule of thumb as to what distance you should have between stitches is to use the length of your thumb as a guide. Continue knitting every row until scarf is desired length, leaving enough to cast off.
Cast off extremely loosely. Even though it looks overly exaggerated, the looser the better to prevent the end of the scarf from puckering. With darning needle, weave end through cast off row.
