Triana - it's too much fun
If you take Flounce
, and put it on steroids, you get Triana. It's super-loopy, and crazy--you'll look at it and think what the heck is this stuff and how am I supposed to knit with it? But it's actually really easy to use and it works up faster than fast on big needles. You'll insert your needle into the top-most loops to cast on and then knit along always using the top loops of the yarn.
When you get a few rows into it, you'll see this gorgeous ruffled fabric with subtle color shifts. The Triana Lux even has a hint of metallic sparkle in it.
Ginni knit this one up in a couple of hours with just one skein of Triana. She cast on 8 stitches, which makes a nice full scarf. Another customer cast on just 6 stitches which makes a longer and slightly narrower scarf.
Ruffles are everywhere, and so much fun. These scarves are so quick to knit, you can do one for everyone on your holiday gift list - except the guys. For some reason, guys just don't want one of these. Can't understand it. ;-)
