Posted by Hello

    I am having trouble with the ruffles pattern, can't get my head around it.

    Any tips? The abbreviations are not clear to me.

    Found a few demos on line but they too confuse me.

    I am working with some gorgeous yarn and getting really frustrated, so any help will be appreciated!

    The sl 1 ktwise means that you are slipping a stitch from the left hand needle to the right handle needle just the way you would knit it. So you place the tip of your right hand needle in the stitch as if you are going to knit and slip it off the left hand needle onto the right. You are just basically moving the stitch from one needle to the other. that help?

    Great - thank you - I thought I was doing something wrong since the abbreviation didn't make sense to me.

    Now, doing that, I wind up after working the first set of the pattern with a spoon shaped object - deep on one end, narrow on the other. Is that correct?

    Let's see, I think what you are describing is right. Once you start working the short rows on each side it looks kind of like a fish tail. Narrower in the middle with points forming on either side. You are doing approximately 7 rows for each row that you knit all the way across. These "extra" rows are what causes it to curl. It should start to curl after a couple inches of work. It will start to look like a circular stairway, if that helps!

    I hope I'm helping!
