I've got a wonderful sweater pattern that uses this yarn and I wondered if anyone has ever used it? It's a ribbon yarn and I've never knit with a ribbon before. Do you try to keep the ribbon as flat as possible? :shrug:

I've not used this yarn yet...but I do know if you try to keep ribbon yarn flat, you'll make yourself crazy. The idea is to let it go as it wants. Knit up a swatch first so you can see how it behaves... :happydance:

:thinking: somewhere I seen this tip.. they took a shoe box and put 2 holes in the side then ran a dowl rod through the center of the box with the ribbon yarn on it.. then they put another slit in the box to feed the ribbon through and they said this helped a bit... I think its pretty but haven't tried it either
