Add a ruffled edge
Hello everyone, I am new and have just found this site. I love it!
I was wondering if someone could help me....I am kntting a baby shawl and have almost finished it....Can someone tell me how to add a ruffled edge? I am a new knitter and have only been knitting a year but love it !
Also, if anyone has a girl's vest in a simple knit pattern I would appreciate that as well.
Thanks in advance and I know I am going to enjoy this site.

First of all, welcome! As for the vest, try www.knittingpatterncentral.com and look in vests of children. You might find something there. The ruffles-- the easiest thing to do is to go to Lion Brand's website and in their yarns, look for "Ruffles". It only comes in 3 colors, but it really works well. If you click on one of the free patterns listed with that yarn, there are links to info as to how to use it-- you have to look for them on the page, but they're there!

You can pick up stitches along the edge of the baby blanket, next row, increase in every stitch. Knit a row plain, then inc in every st again. Keep going until you have the length and ruffliness that you want. You can also increase in every row instead of leaving a plain one inbetween.
