While the outcome looks great, I really do not "love this cotton" for this project. It is extremely loose and stretches way too much. If you use this yarn, your tiny tote will have to be lined.
The Chrysalis ruffle yarn worked great. But instead of using every other hole like the Sashay, use every hole since the holes are bigger. I love the gold color!
Now to work on the No Ruffles version. Will post that when done.
Here is the link again to the pattern:

Drop Stitch Ruffle Infinity Scarf
Keeping tension very loose and using as bulky weight yarn, E-wrap cast on 6 pegs.
Row 2 - Purl all.
Row 3 - (Knit 1, yarn over peg on back of loom) repeat to end.
Row 4 - Purl all. Remove yarn over from all pegs.
Repeat rows 1 - 4, 10 times.
Repeat rows 1 - 2 once more.
(Tip: After I repeat row 2, I stretch out the drop stitches to get the stitches tight and in place before going to the next drop stitch row.)
Unfold yarn to work ruffles.
Repeat from * until ruffle end matches length of drop stitch end.
Without twisting, bring cast on edge up and place loops on pegs.
If you want to make it longer, increase the number of repeats.
