Tying in The Ribbing Material

Tie in the material for the ribbing (usually flat or oval tinsel). With oval tinsel, it is necessary to expose some of the cotton core at the end. This is the material that will be tied to the hook shank to prevent too much bulk at the tie. Tie this directly in front of the butt. It is helpful to hold the ribbing material out of the way with a material clip.
