Rickrack seems to shimmy and skip, its dips and points all but doing a dance. Add it to any surface, and expect a smile. You can weave it into decorative braids, gather it with needle and thread to fashion flowers, or stiffen it to create wreaths, holly clusters, and candy canes.
Soft, shimmering yarns make the most of this basic pattern. We used two yarns -- one ivory mohair and one sequined novelty yarn. A simple technique called grafting is used to close the toe and heel, or you can hand-sew them closed using mohair yarn.
