Ruffle yarn (aka mesh yarn) is the newest entry to the novelty yarn market, and there are several competitors out there: Premier Starbella, Red Heart Boutique Sashay, Spinrite Pirouette, Bernat Twist ‘N Twirl, and more added every day. Primarily they’re used to make twisty ruffle scarves – just the other day I spotted one such scarf on a local celebrity! And while the twirly ruffle scarves are very pretty, you can bet that designers have been hard at work thinking up other fun uses for this yarn. Here are 16 free knit and crochet patterns that use ruffle yarns in new ways!
It’s time for Hookin On Hump Day #39! It was Easter week so there were lots of egg and bunny themed projects, but lots of other good stuff too. And even with Spring on the horizon, afghans are still a favorite project! It was lots of fun for Sara from My Merry Messy Life and I to look through all the links! We co-host this fabulous link party, and every week we highlight both the most clicked link and those that we feel deserve to be in the spotlight! These links will get twice the exposure – featured on both blogs and on our social media sites, so joining up is a great way to get your site seen. Now let’s get to this week’s highlights!
