The fifth and final shawl in my series exploring non-traditional shaping with short rows; available individually, or as part of the 5 Short Row Shawls collection.
A new take on the ruffle shawl, knit sideways in three garter stitch wedges which cleverly intersect. Increases and decreases shape Rufflebye from tip to tip, while two sets of short rows throughout create a crescent shape and a gentle ruffle edging.
Techniques & Skills Used: knit, increasing/decreasing, short rows, long-tail CO.
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.
Yarn: Indigodragonfly MCN Sock (80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon, 375 yards); 1 skein, shown in My Boyfriend Had A Bicentennial (Buffy). See Designer’s Notes for instructions to adjust for different amounts of yarn.
US 6 needles, or size to match gauge.
Stitch markers (2 different).
