Knitting with ribbon yarn
I'm knitting a shoulder scarf on large needles with a colorful ribbon yarn. How do I weave in the ends when finishing?

I don't get your quesiton. Are you asking "how do you weave the yarn at the end of a project?" or are you asking "how do you weave this particular yarn so it won't visibly show up?"

If it's the first, you just litterally weave the yarn in and out of the holes in your project to hide the tail. If it's the latter, I'd just weave it like any other project.
Life's too short to knit with scratchy yarn.

Ribbon yarn has a tendency to want to unweave it self sometimes so I think I'd probably weave it in then tack it down a bit with a needle and thread.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
