Trellis

black & white ribbon

Lion Brand Trellis is very unusual, 100% nylon, made in Turkey, and like the other ribbon yarns it works better knitting than crocheting. This yarn looks like a ladder because it has open space between two side filaments–this scarf in black with white blocks–alternating with solid blocks. It is a bit tricky to work with because you really need to watch what you are picking up to knit. One filament wil not take much pulling, while two filaments together are strong enough for a fashion scarf. It’s really quite beautiful as a finished product and the yarn would make a fabulous evening shawl.
