Anyone know of a good reliable source online to buy it from? Where I will not pay a fortune for shipping an handling?

Do you mean the really ruffley stuff? Try JoAnn Fabrics. I believe it's called Sashay. I don't know how much it is, I don't know anyone who would wear the scarves made from it.

Frilly/ruffle yarn comes from many yarn makers, all slightly different. Mary Maxim has several pages in their catalog with different kinds. They are fun and fast and I've discovered that little girls LOVE the pink ones. So do the older gals in Palm Springs. They are fun to wear. Michaels has the Sashay on sale 2 balls for $8 every once in awhile. One ball will make a long scarf.

Actually the ladder yarn is something different than the Sashay. It is by Bernat and called Matrix. Can be seen at the link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: Bernat Matrix Ladder Yarn

They are all knit the same, using a top edge only, not the whole ribbon of yarn. Once you get the hang of it, it goes very quickly and when added to the edge of a regular yarn knitted garment, I think it is a lot of FUN!

Actually, the ladder/trellis yarn does not knit up using only the top edge. It's actually a rather narrow yarn (I wouldn't even really call it yarn).

Clueless, have you used any of the ladder/trellis yarn? I bought several balls of it a few years ago and I HATE it. I don't know how much you need or what color you want, but if you like, I can check this weekend and round up what I have left and let you know what I have. You could have it for the cost of the shipping. I REALLY don't like it.

Well, I guess, I have never seen a "ladder/trellis" yarn as you describe. When I did a google search it brought up all those other yarns, of which I am familiar. Those do work using only the top edge. Donna, do you have a photo of it, because I cannot imagine it, and would like to see it.

Just curious... How would you knit with that stuff if you don't use just the top thread?

I don't knit - I crochet, but the whole "ladder = top rail, bottom rail and colored steps" is treated/handled as a single thread. You knit or crochet the ladder thread the same as you would a single strand of yarn. Think of all 3 components of the ladder as you would a 3-ply yarn.

And what does that look like????? I think Donna got it right....not so good. I've seen the ribbon yarn from other makers and if you just knit that top string you get a layered piece that looks pretty good, but not with the big spaces in the Bernat yarn. Other ribbon yarns (that I've seen) don't have those empty spaces.

This is a whole new territory for me from "regular" twisted yarns. Much learning to do.

I personally don't like it....the look or crocheting with it.

In my opinion, it's kind of "slippery", and looks terrible if you try to weave in the ends. And they wouldn't stay weaved in anyway (remember - slippery). I ended up using a needle and thread and sewing down the ends. And it isn't soft or comfortable against your skin. Also, as justlinda said, you knit it as if it were one thread (the ones I've seen/used are very narrow).
