I recently discovered Sashay yarn.
Looking at the skein, it looks a little like fabric tape. But, the model in the picture above is wearing a ruffled scarf. I always wondered if you could make one like that with knitting and it turns out you can! I used the pattern put out by the company that makes the yarn, Red Heart. The pattern also links to a video that I found super helpful. Once you get the hang of it, which takes a couple of rows, knitting with this is barely more difficult than knitting with regular yarn. No fancy stitches required - not even purling! I highly recommend it. Plus, these are the results!
I also made one in the color called Tango, which was the skein pictured in the first photo.
And here's a shot of the two together:
