I love this scarf and the colors...but I need to find a yarn I can use for it besides crystal palace. I'll be getting the yarn from Michaels. Any suggestions?

I'm also going to buy some super chunky yarn and knit a couple scarves on big needles.

I think any ribbon yarn (http://www.michaels.com/art/online/displayProductPage?productNum=nw0117) would work.

:thinking: depending on what color you want, I'd say the closest to that "ribbon" would be Lion Brand Incredible http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/incredible.htm

The LB Incredible has always caught my eye at Michaels....I just cant remember if they have metallic-ey colors or not....

Okay, I'm at the lionbrand site looking around & I've not seen this in person but I think that this LB suede (http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/lionSuede.html) and their Velvet Spun (http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/velvetSpun.html) as well as the trellis (http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/trellis.html) look nice....especially the velvet

Kelly, I have a great shot of the scarf I knit with it. It is shimmery in light.
