A feisty, frilly accent piece, it twists, twirls, curls, swirls AND SPARKLES!
Tutu is a new yarn from Crystal Palace Yarns arriving shortly. It is a wide, flat ribbon yarn which has little boxes of strong, thin yarn attached along one edge. Knit into each box to generate a stitch and create a spectacular ruffle.
Sparkle it up: Make it sparkle by adding a
fashion yarn just above the ruffle and in the bind
off, which will make it snazzy.
Suggestion: If using a solid color TuTu, you might choose a variegated or self-striping worsted weight yarn to be its compliment. Solid worsted weights work best with TuTu color blends.

Fashion it as a scarf, shawlette, collar or cowl. Add an amazing shawl pin to create a stunning accessory. Center the widest part in front and throw the ends over your shoulders for a sassy statement. Knit flat in garter stitch, TuTu Sparkle! is completely reversible.
Crystal Palace Yarns, Cotton Twirl, which has a desirable touch of elastic, was selected for the upper portion of the knitting. Choose from any of the Crystal Palace Yarns worsted weights to knit this portion. Enjoy!
