We love Louisa Harding Sari Ribbon! It’s an amazing sparkly ribbon yarn, which can be used for garments (2 skeins for a little shrug), accessories, or for some really lovely and unusual trimmings making it a very versatile yarn.
With 120 metres in a 100g skein, even if you just use it as a pretty ribbon for tying around presents, it’s a bargain, working out at just over 8p per metre at full price or just over 5p per metre if you use your HEATWAVE discount code to get 35% off!
If you fancy making a cute accessory instead, how about this lovely free Easy-Peasy bag pattern which you can find on Knitting Fever’s website here? It only takes one 100g skein!
Louisa Harding’s Etcetera book has a range of patterns for Sari Ribbon, Mila, Jesse, Mulberry, Grace Hand dyed and Mulberry Hand beaded.
If you fancy making a garment, how about this pretty little cardi? It takes 2 – 3 skeins of Sari Ribbon, just add an extra skein if you want to make the version with elbow length sleeves. Or how about this lovely lace cushion cover? Just 3 skeins will make a really eye catching addition to your sofa that knits up quickly on 7mm needles.
If you’re looking for another creative idea for Sari Ribbon, how about making little yarn eggs? Anne has been busy making these cute little packages which are perfect for filling with chocolate as little gifts!
To make these, get some little balloons (those sold for making water bombs are perfect), soak the ribbon in glue and wrap it randomly around the inflated balloons, leaving a few little gaps (so you can fill them later) and leave them to dry. Then pop the ballons, remove them from inside the yarn eggs and fill them with whatever takes your fancy. Great fun!
