A few weeks ago someone submitted a photo of a Lacy Spiral Scarf made from a wide yarn with large holes in the yarn. I believe the yarn in the photo was shades of purple. Anyway I have been trying to find such a yarn..no luck. Does any one know the name and brand of such a yarn??

Two more similar yarns are Premier Starbella and Red Heart Sashay. A more expensive one is Knitting Fever Flounce.

I bought a couple skeins from HObby Lobby called Chrysalis...There are some of these yarns on Ebay too.

There are many companies that make this type of yarn. Starbella, Pirouette by Patons and Sashay by Red Heart. Joann's has the Sashay online only. If you have AC Moore in your area they carry Starbella and Pirouette. I just ordered a bunch from iceyarn.com. I will let you know who my experience is with them and the yarn after it arrives in the next couple of days.

Just ran across this great explanation for creating the Potato Chip Scarf. Hope it helps anyone who's still having problems.

Thanks to everyone for helping me locate the yarn I was trying to find!! I had no idea there were so many different ones. It is great to have online friends who have such great knowledge! Happy Halloween to all!

The scarves I knit are made with Paton's Pirouette yarn. I'm not sure if that's exactly the spiral scarf you mean, but the ones made from Pirouette are gorgeous.

Check this link. There are a lot of yarns that make ruffles. Some are a narrow ribbon, others are a wide ribbon. The wide ribbon can have a large or small mesh. Check this link: http://www.knittingparadise.com/t-35222-2.html
The cheapest of these yarns is Ballerina and Flamenco by Ice/Yarn Paradise. But, you have to buy it in packages of 4 of the same color. Red Heart and Bernat now carry their own versions and it's relatively inexpensive compared to Katia, Triana and Universal, Marina. Stylecraft makes one also and if you buy it through Deramores, there is free shipping to the US. I just checked Deramores and they are offering only one color: http://us.deramores.com/stylecraft-ruffles
