I have a pattern for a child`s dress and it calls for knitting ribbon yarn. What exactly is ribbon knitting yarn. What company makes this kind of yarn? Your help is greatly appreciated. Also, what could be substituted for this kind of yarn? Tracy

Hi!

A lot of companies make knitting ribbon. It`s usually flat woven...kinda like (sewing) hem tape... or a knitted tube (picture the leg of a LONG skinny stocking)! It can be either woven or knitted, and varies according to fiber content and weight. Check Berrocco`s website-they`ve made a ribbon yarn called Glace for years. Also check here, look at Barolo, and Tahki`s Como. Look at the yarn requirements and the garment`s properties before you substitute, but, generally speaking, yardage and gauge should be your guide.
Good luck!
