I liked the idea of knitting ruffles. It takes some time, but I really like the results. This is my swatch for a new short sleeve sweater I am planning – probably in size 6 with some ruffles around the neck and sleeves. The yarn is upcycled from an old sweater – hardly worn at all – 100% cotton with a bit of sheen to it. I like it. As soon as I am done with the little sweater I am working on right now (I have maybe 10% left) I will start this one.
