That is a great bind-off!
This is the ruffle edge I am planning for the sides:
instructs “always maintain the two stitch garter plus yarn over edge at each end of your garment”.
I will be working in the round if I choose to knit a ruffled neck edge, so I don’t know if this would apply. I think I would still need to add stitches, maybe a kfb stitch here would work design wise?
also instructs “Discontinue center yo increases at this point.”
Being that the ruffle drapes to a downward point I am thinking that increases are not necessary here, thus the elimination of the increase stitches. Does this seem right?
I know I would need to pick up stitches along the neck edge (a new skill to learn).
• Would I need to pick up additional stitches on the upper corners?
• Do I pick up stitches using a separate strand of yarn?
• And how would I join the picked up stitches to the working yarn?
I ordered blocking wires and they are arriving on Wednesday, giving me plenty of time to work on the ruffle. The ruffle pattern calls for quadrupling the number of stitches, (doubling the stitches twice). For the sides alone, this will equal close to 1400 stitches, for each row!
When I purchased this yarn, I bought the whole bag (a momentary loss of sanity). I fell in
with the color and I am a fan of linen and cotton. Upon later inspection I realized how thin the yarn was and could not imagine how I would use up all that yardage. At this point it is not hard to imagine using at least two to three balls for the ruffle alone.
