This week’s favorite from the vaults of my knitting board on Pinterest is a post from Tricksy Knitter on how to knit ruffles. As you can see from the picture there are tons of different ways to add a ruffle to knitting, and these are not even all of the options.
This post offers a roundup of all the different ruffles that have been explored on the Tricksy Knitter site, with links so you can quickly find the ones you want to learn more about.
I love the corkscrew ruffle, which I think would be adorable at the top of a little girl’s sock, and the gathered eyelet ruffle, a classic that gets you a ruffle and extra embellishment when you thread a ribbon through the eyelets.
Something about spring has me ready to break out the ruffles! Do you ever knit ruffles? I’d love to hear how you use them.
