A new take on the ruffle shawl, Rufflebye is worked sideways in three garter stitch wedges which cleverly intersect to change the direction of the knitting. Increases and decreases create the shape from tip to tip, while two sets of short rows throughout form the crescent shape and the gently ruffled edging. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Techniques & Skills Used: knit, increasing/decreasing, short rows, long-tail CO. GAUGE Gauge: 22 st x 34 rows/4" in garter stitch, after gentle blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Size: 10" deep at center; 45" from tip to tip if pulled straight. Rufflebye forms a natural semi-circle and measures 40" along inner semi-circumference, and 72" along outer semi-circumference, measured without stretching. The 12-stitch ruffle is approximately 2.6" and begins as soon as there are enough stitches.
