Step 1: Materials
1 Ball of Red Heart Sashay Yarn
(Any brand that has the net pattern when you pull it apart is ok, but I prefer this brand.)
A crochet hook
(Don't panic, you don't need to know how to crochet)
Step 2: Casting On
For this project you'll be working on the very top of this yarn (not the metallic part at the bottom). When you get the yarn, you'll pull it apart to see the netting pattern. To cast on, simply count three holes in at the top and slip the fourth hole onto your crochet hook. (The very top holes may be somewhat hidden unless you pull it apart more). Skip the next hole and slip on the sixth hole. Now you have 2 stitches and you will need six. Keep on casting on using every other hole until you have six stitches.
Step 3: The "Crocheting" Part
This is super simple. All you have to do is slide the sixth stitch into the hook part at the end so it won't come off and slide the rest of the stitches off but leaving the sixth one on. The sixth stitch becomes your first stitch and you cast on five more stitches using every other hole. Again, you slide the sixth one into the hook and slide the rest off. Easy! Now you just keep on doing this until it's the length you want.
I recommend making it twice the length you want so you can fold it in half to have twice the ruffles all around. (Like in the picture in the intro)
Step 4: Binding Off
When it's your desired length simply DON'T add the other five stitches to the one stitch and tie a double knot with the yarn and trim the extra off.
If you are folding it in half for more ruffles just tie the two ends together.
Step 5: Done!
