I'm progressing nicely with this new shawl, I need to give it a name ....... I know I will call this one "Mango Tango"
Now I have to decide weather to short row the ruffle part or just pick up stitches all the way around and increase every other stitch etc. Either way it's going to be a lot of knitting. I thought about knitting the ruffle on the machine but I'm not sure. I guess as much as I hate to I'll have to test and swatch.
If I do the pick up stitches and increase ruffle it will look something like this:
I don't have to test this method it's fairly easy, just pick up my stitches all the way around with my 60" circular needles and start knitting. *k1, kfb, k1; rep from * across all the picked up stitches. This would be an easier knit.
If I short row the ruffle I would knit it and then sewed it on to the shawl. What to do?
Short rowing will look more like the picture from Vogue:
What do you think?
