Thanks for your message in our Chat Center regarding the Ara Ruffled Scarf.
When you start knitting with Studio Tricot Ara you need to make a few small folds at the beginning before making your first stitch; this helps to stabilize the first few stitches. Studio Tricot Ara is a ruffle yarn (more of a webbed fabric) that is prepared in such a way that a simple knit stitch turns it into a scarf or shawl. Working with ruffle yarns is similar to regular knitting, but instead of wrapping the working yarn around the right needle, the right needle is slipped through the top edge of the yarn, and then pulled through the stitch on the left hand needle. For example to create a Ruffled Shawl, you work along the top edge of the yarn, inserting needle from back to front, pick up 85 stitches, spaced approximately 1.5" to 2" apart, and continue knitting every row of 85 stitches, ending in a complete row until there are around 15 yards left of the 6th ball.
I hope this information is helpful.
All my best,
