Full Answer

Ruffle yarn is webbed, and when knitted up, it forms ruffles. Knitting with ruffle yarn is fairly easy. Instead of wrapping the yarn around the knitting needle, insert the needle through the yarn. Scarves are a quick and popular project, but a few rows of ruffles can be added to nearly any knitting project. Using garter stitch results in a very thick, reversible ruffled piece, while working stockinette stitch results in a less dense piece with right and wrong sides.

Patterns using Florence yarn are available on Ravelry. To find them, go to the Ravelry site, enter Loops & Threads Florence in the search box, and choose "Yarn" as the search option.
