So, You’d Like to Add a Ruffle

What a perfect little ruffle!

I wanted to finish off the edge of the first little blanket with something girly. Pretty. Lacy. Something not too elaborate or complicated, but super feminine looking. Shells were too boring, picots were too small, so I came up with a little something myself that’s just the ticket.

Frilly Ruffled Edge for Any Stitch Multiple

Row 1: Sc in each st. (If you’re working around and you need to make corners, make 3 sc in each corner and join the round at the end.)
Row 2: Dc increase in each st. (If you’re doing corners, make 3 dc in each of the 3 corner sc.)
Row 3: Ch 4, dc in the same st. *Ch 2, dc in next st. Repeat from * across. (If you’re going around, sl st in the 3rd ch of the beginning ch.)

As you can see, it’s a simple but effective way to ruffle it up!

    Thank you so much for posting this pattern. I have just finished an afghan with the silhouette of a ballerina, and the ruffle edging is simply PERFECT!

    Thinking about using this for a blanket I’ve made. I want to get some clarification, though. In the 2nd row, by DC increase, you mean put 2 DC in each SC below, correct? TIA!

    Thank you for this edging. I’m finishing a prayer shawl and didn’t want to use the fringe it calls for as that would be cumbersome with tubes, bandages, etc. So I was looking for an edge to make it pretty and feminine – this fits the purpose to a tee!

    Thank you so much for this. I am knitting a dialysis blanket for my 5 year old granddaughter who is waiting for a kidney transplant & wanted to add a crochet edge to it when I’m done. This is perfect!
