Lion Brand® Lion® Wool - Ruffles®
25 sts + 24 rows = 4" (10 cm) on size 8 needles with A in ribbing stitch BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
|This piece is made in 1 x 1 ribbing (ribbing that is one stitch wide). As a result, the finished item is very stretchy.|
Knitting with Ruffles requires a special, yet simple, technique. The loops
are formed by inserting the needle into this tape-fabric yarn. Please visit www.LionBrand.com

Fold the piece to make a sleeve with the ruffle at the top. Thread the
large-eyed, blunt needle with (A). Starting at the end with the ruffle, sew the
edges together, stopping about 2 inches [5 cm] from the end. On the end of the
piece where there are no ruffles, sew just the end, leaving the opening. This is
where the thumb goes.
