New for 2011: Flamenco by Trendsetter – ruffling mesh yarn. A flouncy styled
ribbon that when spread open, looks like a fisherman’s net, Flamenco is a truly
unique yarn. By knitting the top edge, it opens up to about 3 inches and creates
beautiful openwork ruffles. You can use Flamenco alone or with any other plain
or textured yarn.
I’ve just ordered mine. Can’t wait to play with ;o)

So pretty! I want to make that scarf… :D
OMGOSH! I just watched the video tutorial…WOW! Okay, now I HAVE TO make one of these! So different, Alla, where did you find this?
First, I saw it in our LYS and then found it online. Isn’t they are NET?! ;) BTW, Katia also has this type of yarn – I’ll show you in a few.
Your work is the most stunning that I have ever seen. You are such an inspiration for crocheters all over the world. Thank you so much.
Thank you so much Barbara! And just in case – these scarves are not my designs & creations ;) But I really adore it!! So fun and net!!
I love the picture of that green scarf in the picture, but the pattern is no longer available for sale on the trendsetter website. Could you roughly describe what you think is the vague pattern for it? I can’t make out what shape it would be if it is laid flat. Thanks for your expertise, can’t wait to buy your other patterns.
I am interested in obtaining the pattern for the green flamenco scarf above. Can you help? Thank you!
