Over the past year ruffle scarf yarns
have exploded onto the knitting and crochet scene!
Ruffle Scarf yarn is this amazing stuff that almost magically knits or crochets up into these wonderful ruffle scarves.
There are many different types which we’ll explain below, but most of them basically look like a long strip of mesh.
You simply knit through the holes along the edge of the mesh and it’s transformed into soft ruffles.
Some new varieties of ruffle yarn have come out recently that look like a long strip of fabric and lace.
You can even combine these together for the ultimate ruffle scarf!
All of the ruffle yarns come with a free ruffle scarf pattern and almost all of them use just one ball to make a ruffle scarf!
The best part about ruffle yarn is that these scarves only take about 1-2 hours to knit!
Imagine how many ruffle scarves you could whip out for your holiday gift knitting!
You might be overwhelmed by the large variety so I’ll explain the different types below.
Triana ruffle yarn (shown above) and Marina ruffle yarn both knit up into very lacy and open ruffles. These yarns are great because they are fairly inexpensive and you just need one to make a really pretty ruffle scarf!
Rozetti Spectra yarn knits up the same way Marina does, but these have cute little ‘bubbles’ along the edge. I love the variegated colorways that Spectra comes in, they are really fun! Rozetti Spectra Duet is the same yarn, but in more of a tonal color range. You will just need one ball of yarn for a ruffle scarf.
Knitting Fever Flounce yarn creates more of a solid ruffle instead of lacy. This ruffle yarn is really soft and comes in a wide range of colors. It’s also available with sparkle in the Flounce Metallic Yarn and there is a 100% hand painted merino version in the Luxury Flounce. You will need two balls of yarn to knit a ruffle scarf with Flounce.
Even Rowan has come out with their own ruffle yarn! Rowan's Kidsilk Creation version is made using their Kidsilk Haze yarn which is a blend of kid mohair and silk so it’s super soft and a little fuzzy. Kidsilk Creation knits up a little differently than the others. It knits up into more of a swirling spiral ruffle scarf. It's also available in a fun striping version called Kidsilk Creation Stripe. Katia Park Avenue ruffle yarn is very similar to these yarns. Park Avenue also knits in the spiral and is a mohair blend.
Circulo Tecido Trico ruffle yarn is a really unique one! It looks like a strip of fabric, but it has laser cut holes along the edge. You just knit through these holes to make these feminine ruffle scarves. Tecido Trico ruffle yarn comes in a wide range of prints from floral, animal to polka-dots.
Circulo Renda Trico Margarida looks like a wide strip of lace, but it has holes along the edge to knit through. Margarida comes in a wide range of colors and this scarf is versatile enough you could wear it to dress up a t-shirt and jeans, but it would also look nice with something a little more formal.
Combine the Ciculo Tecido Trico and the Circulo Renda Trico Margardia ruffle yarns to create this gorgeous floral and lace scarf. You will just need one of each to create this magnificent ruffle scarf!
