Hi, I'm Cara Graver at The Cob Studio and this is how to knit a ruffle. Okay. If you, if you're thinking about knitting a ruffle, ruffle is usually tighter at the base and it gets wider. So, I've started knitting my ruffle here and what I did was I increased in every stitch. Then, I'm going to knit another row that's plain so that there's some length to my ruffle. But, if you didn't want to have lengths to your ruffle, you could just keep increasing in every stitch and you'd have many stitches for your ruffle. You can do this on any size needle, with any size yarn. You can imagine if it was really thick yarn and big needles, that would be a fluffy fluffy ruffle. So, this is, I'm just binding off; I knit two, slip one over the second one, did another, slip the first one over. We've really accumulated a lot of stitches here by increasing so many and you could make your ruffle maybe a little less ruffly by increasing every other stitch or every third stitch. You can play around with it, but this is the jest of it, tight at the base and widening rapidly. I'm Cara Graver at The Cob Studio and that was a tutorial on ruffle knitting.
