Unfortunately many of the ribbon and mesh yarns have been discontinued. However, you may be one of the lucky ones to still have a ball or two. If not, maybe you can search and find some. I especially enjoyed working with this type of “yarn” combined with more traditional yarn as its base. I’m definitely going to miss it. However, I decided to still put up some of my favorite patterns using this type of “yarn” under Ruffles Galore. If you have or can find this type of yarn, please give one of these free patterns a try. I think you’ll enjoy the results. I know anyone who receives one of these gifts will.
