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!
