Home > Yarn > Self - Ruffling Yarns
Normally, you knit by wrapping yarn around your needle. With ruffle yarns, which are like flat ribbons, you knit by
sticking your needle through the edge of the yarn. Some yarns have pre-made holes for your needle; others let you
go through at any point. There are (so far) four basic styles:

Fine Mesh - These were the original ruffle yarns – fine thread machine-knit into wide, stretchy gauze ribbon. You
poke your needle through the ribbon edge, spacing holes about 1/2" to 1" apart. By changing the placement of your
holes or twisting the ribbon, you can get many different ruffle styles

Large-Hole Net - These yarns started as "scarf mesh" -- strips of netting with large openings that crafters could
needle-weave yarns through. Eventually, some brilliant soul found that knitting the net itself created a new kind
of ruffle effect – plant-like, organic, and open. Now there are many variations in colors, size, mesh patterns, and
decorative trims and accents. They're all knit the same way though, working through holes along one edge.

Track-Edge - Track-edge yarns arrived next, and they are typically the easiest to work. Instead of an entire
ribbon being of mesh, these yarns are mostly solid, with openings only along one edge, a band of narrow “trellis” or
“railroad-track” ribbon. The holes are easy to see and use. These ribbons also come in many colors, widths, styles
and trims, and can be knit through every hole for a tight, crinkly ruffle, or through every other hole for a wider,
smoother effect

Fabric Ribbons - Inspired by the ruffle rush, a Brazilian company named Circulo pioneered the idea of turning
sewing trims into knitting trims by punching holes in them! These chiffon and lace ribbons look as if they came
from a fabric store, until you notice the knitting-needle-sized holes punched at intervals along one edge. They
make great scarves, but can also be used to trim knitted garments quickly and easily in ways that cannot be done
with standard knitting yarns and techniques.
