Tillie, Jan is right. I'm sorry, I didn't see your question til today.
It is in Cables Untangled,
and the best part is: it's knit all in one piece! No strips to seam! I remember using US11 needles for the project. (24 skeins of bulky yarn) The pattern itself calls for worsted weight yarn, a smaller size needle, and fringe. By using bulky yarn, mine turned out bigger than the model...but that's what I intended.
You'll love how fast and fun the design is! I was done with it in 4 weeks! I was almost sad when it was done! Almost.
The "bell ruffle" is found in Nicki Epstein's book: Knitting On The Edge.
Also at Amazon. Well worth the investment, too.
I opted for the bell ruffles at the end because it's different, plus the bulky yarn I was using doesn't do well as fringe. It gets all splitty and wonky on the ends very easily. (Rowan Polar, now discontinued: I got it on Ebay, f
rom the Rowan lady, for a great price, and free shipping!)
