Some easy projects to try with Ribbon yarn
Gone are the days of crafting with scratchy, acrylic yarns. We are now spoilt for choice when it comes to fibres to use for our crochet, knitting, weaving, macrame and fibre crafts.
We welcomed the versatile Ribbon Yarn to our range in 2016, not long after we launched our online store with our first and only product, T-shirt yarn.
Ribbon yarn is a beautifully soft, woven, tape like yarn, vary lightweight and perfect for so many creations!
We often get asked what sort of projects Ribbon yarn is suitable for, and the short answer is ANYTHING!
Often called tape yarn, lace yarn, mix tape yarn or fettuccine yarn, it comes in a huge variety of shades and contains recycled fibres.
Many projects have been completed here at AHYC using Ribbon yarn including rugs, baskets, placemats, bags, hanging pods and more.
Recently we were fortunate enough to find the very talented Gillian, creator behind the designs of Loopy Handmade Patterns. Gillian has created some beautiful patterns, among them some using the versatile Ribbon Yarn.
I was fortunate enough to be able to try out a couple of Gillian's patterns, including the Bohdi Basket and the Jain Tote bag (pictured below) Gillian patterns are beautifully set out and a breeze to follow, with extensive step by step photos to help guide you through the pattern.
With no shortage of patterns to try, you can find Loopy Handmade on Ravelry or Esty.
