What is a Ruffle stitch?

Ruffle stitching is a great way of adding bold and beautiful textured details to your knitting projects. From delicate details to dramatic flourishes, ruffles elevate your design to the next level.

These added details are playful, quirky, whimsical, and most of all, fun and easy to create.

Ruffles can make a fun and feminine feature when added to sweaters, jumpers, baby clothes and blankets. It is even possible to create an entire knitted scarf from ruffle knitting.

How to Ruffle Stitch

A ruffle stitch takes 3 stitches to create and can be done wherever you have a multiple of 3 double crochet stitches in the previous row.

Begin your ruffle stitch with a front loop sc into the first stitch.

Then create a half double crochet and 3 double crochet stitches around the post of the stitch.

The stitch after this should be skipped. Finally, make a front loop sc into the third stitch.

Always remember to check the back of your work, to make sure that you have the correct number of stitches.
