I discovered ruffle yarn or ladder yarn (that’s what I have heard it called). Well, maybe I didn’t actually discover it, but I have discovered that I love to use it. There are a lots of different kinds out there…like this…
Here are some close up examples…
Ok, so I found some ruffle yarn at Hobby Lobby (and it goes without saying that I used my 40% off coupon) for $4 and knitted my first scarf in an evening watching TV. Here’s what it looks like…
This is the yarn label…if you notice there are nice directions that show you how to use the yarn. Of course when I started my knitting, I didn’t see those directions and ended up looking up the “how to” on YouTube.
Since making that first scarf, I have made three more. One beautiful rose and pale green scarf for my mom for Christmas and two more for me. This red ombre is a fun color.
But this one is my favorite…it reminds me of peacock feathers.
This yarn was $14 at a local yarn shop. Such beautiful colors!
The interesting thing about this yarn is that you use the loops of the yarn to cast on and knit with.
I am linking to these great parties…
This looks so soft, so stylistic and versatile. I was wondering how it's knitted. Now I know with your last picture. Thanks for sharing.
That is so interesting! I haven't heard of this kind of yarn before. It's really cool. I LOVE the scarves you made with it. Thanks for sharing with us at Link It Up Thursday.
In this season I have made three ruffle scarfs: one for my mum, for my mum-in-law and for me. I love its exotic looking :)
This Katia yarn is beautiful. My mum's scarf had some similar color.
So pretty and a project that I can get done in short order :0)
Thanks so much for taking the time to share at Pin'Inspiration Thursday. Hope to see you on Saturday to help "Beat the Winter Blues". Have an awesome day.
Cool yarn! I've never seen it before. Does it only come in acrylic?
All 3 of your scarves look fab! :)
That's awesome! I had no idea this existed! So pretty!
I have never seen ladder yarn before, I want some now, your scarves are beautiful.
Never heard of this before, but it looks cool. Happy you linked to Things I've Done Thursday!
I've already given everyone in the family scarves...but now I can give them new fancy ones if I can just find some of this yarn!!!
Wow! That yarn looks so awesome!! I have never used it. Your scarves came out beautiful! Thanks for sharing them at my party!
Very pretty, I am inviting you come and be part of my blog hop:
I love that green and blue yarn! Those are my colors so it's not a big surprise I guess. I would never have guessed that that's how its made! Thanks for sharing
I never heard of this yarn. The 'peacock scarf' is my favorite too, although they are all lovely. Thanks for sharing.
What pretty scarves! I'm looking forward to trying this!
Oh my gosh! This is a dream project of mine! But, I just learned how to use my sewing machine, so one thing at a time for me :) Would love for you to come share at my link party: http://www.dwellonjoy.com/2012/02/dwell-on-fridays-three.html
I obviously have not been shopping for yarn lately! Need to remedy that! Hope my scarves turn out as lovely as yours!
I've never seen yarn like that! It's amazing - and the scarves you made are just beautiful Ellen!
Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
Hope you have a fabulous week!

I love your scarf made with the Katia Rizo yarn...actually my daughter saw it and gave a very subtle hint for Christmas. Could you tell me where I could get this yarn please?
Thanks very much.
