DIY: Fancy Scarf

***SPANISH, FRENCH, ENGLISH, GERMAN AND DUTCH INSTRUCTIONS BELOW!!!***

After an accident with my dress (I gave it to needlewoman to fix it and she damaged my dress), I received 2 balls of a very interesting yarn (as an apology, oh and she also fixed my dress again, for free). The thread looked a little bit like net when I unfold it. And it was this brand:

I was kinda confused since I saw these kind of threads for the first time. :) But that needlewoman said that you can make a very beautiful scarf from it. I got interested and went to a specialized shop. All about handmade stuff. And then I saw a little example of scarf knitted laying here and also a paper with instructions for this scarf.
Here was the example photo on the paper:

After wearing this scarf for whole autumn I noticed that it became more narrow and longer due to often usage. But I also bought new yarn of this kind called Katia Ondas (click to visit their website) and knitted a scarf for mom:

We both love long scarfs so I made it using 2 balls. I compared those two brands and can recommend to use Katia brand for this scarf. ALWAYS. It has a lot more ruffles and it is way more warmer than the first one. Well, at least that first brand I got was for free so I don't regret making it... :D But always take your time to get to know yarn you will be using, guys. Quality is the most important! :3
Good luck~
