I have seen instructions out there for ruffles with increasing every other or every stitch for a row, then a plain row (or two) then another increase row, etc. Now that I have an idea how to do it (I haven't tried it yet) can anyone give me an idea of what the difference in look is? Can I see your pics of soakers/shorts/capris/longies with ruffles and can you tell me what type of ruffle you made? That would help TONS!

I'd love to see pics of different kinds of ruffles, too! I'm knitting a skirt and want to add a ruffle to the bottom of it. TIA!

I saw a really pretty ruffle on Knitty gritty- imagine a 2x2 rib... only there were increases (or were the decreases? hmmm trying to remember which direction they came at them from) in the knit sections of the rib- so at the outer edge of the ruffle it may have been a 5x2 or a 6x2 rib.... the effect was more like pleats- a little flatter and crisper- I think they have instructions on their website for all the projects- but I can't remember what episode that was.

This ruffle I did was done with an increase every other stitch and then an increase every third stitch:

I plan to do ruffles on her next set of pants so I'll post those if you're still looking then.

That's really pretty! If you were making the ruffle three or four inches long, would you continue increasing every other stitch for a few more rows before going down to every third?

I'd probably put rows without increases between them. It's one of those things I'd end up playing with, kwim.

I've never knit ruffles onto longies but I have knit this hat, and it has really cute/easy ruffles.

So, if you wanted you could knit just the ruffles using her K2tog method and then add them to the longies by picking up stitches. Something you could try anyway

I hope that makes sense

On both of these, I did increases every third stitch for one round, then I k a round even and then did anther round of increases until I got the desired width. Then I bound off and crocheted 3 chain sts into every other bound off stitch.

I paired it with decorative yarn over increases to add eyelet rows, too.

I have these:
Belle Bottom Soaker

I ruffled those using a stitch pattern from Nicky Epstein's On the Edge.

Wow, all of these are gorgeous! I have the "Over the Edge" book, but not "On the Edge" which I probably should have started with.

I really love On the Edge! It's given me so many ideas for different trims, and I really love the ruffles chapter.
