How to Crochet with Ribbon Yarn

Notice what the yarn looks like when you spread open the ribbon.


With so many new yarn choices, yarn shops, like Jo-Ann Fabrics and Hobby Lobby, have become a treasure trove for knitters and crocheters. The first type of ribbon yarn I discovered was Red Heart Boutique Sashay Yarn. As I worked with it, I discovered that I could get a beautiful lacy effect without much effort on my part. I did, however, have to figure out how to hide the edges and how to adjust the instructions to fit a crocheter; the instructions on the Sasha label were printed for knitters only.



After using the Sashay Yarn, I discovered other ribbon yarns, like Yarn Bee Chrysalis shown above, that provide the same look and require the same technique. Notice the difference between Red Heart Boutique Sashay Yarn and Yarn Bee Chrysalis. One is wider than the other. When you stretch the yarn you find the places where you can begin knitting or crocheting.

Because both yarns and other ribbon yarns use the same technique, I'd like to guide you to my blog, How to Crochet with Red Heart Boutique Sashay Yarn for instructions on how to crochet with any ribbon yarn.
