The Ballerina Yarn Scarf is crocheted together similar to the Flamenco Scarf.
1. Stretch the yarn. Both sides of the yarn are the same so you can pick which side you want the top to be.
2. Starting with the end of the yarn on the side of the hand you crochet with. (Right handers with have the end the yarn on the right side with the ball of yarn on the left.) You will notice that the yarn is like a netted fabric which makes diamond shapes. Work with one of the top netted rows of thread. It doesn't really matter if you use the very top or the 2nd or 3rd, but try to stay consistant throughout the project.
3. Start at least 5 diamond shapes from the end of the yarn. Insert the crochet hook from front to back into the top of the net 5 times with approximately 2 inches of space inbetween each insert creating loops on your crochet hook.
4. Pull the 5th loop (closest to your hook) through the rest of the 4 loops on your crochet hook. You made need to pull the 4th loop down to stretch it out as you pull your hook through, because it tends to be a tight squeeze.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you reach a desired length. I like to make the scarves about 5 - 6 feet. The yarn tends to turn in the same direction as you go. You will have to spin it around every so often so it doesn't get too twisted. If you would like a fuller scarf, insert your hook into more than 4 holes in step 3.
6. To finish, pull up the loop that was on your crochet hook about 2 inches. You will use this to tie off.
7. Trim the yarn and tie the pulled loop and remaining yarn in a knot. Then tie one or two knots over it to secure. Trim the ends. You can go back to the starting end of your scarf and do the same. Instead of pulling up a loop, tie the top and bottom parts of the yarn together.

How to wear: There are probably many ways to wear the scarf. I like to put it around the back of my neck with one side about 1.5 feet longer. Take the longer side and wrap it around your neck and all the way back to the front. Then cross the two long sides and put one through the middle as if you were tying a half knot. Feel free to post any of your ideas.
