Attaching the Ruffle

Jennifer asked me to take some photos of attaching the ruffle on the Monica sweater since I am knitting it in the round. You’ll see I decided to do the last inch of the body in the lavender. Here they are, step by step:

The two pieces that will be joined, the body and the ruffle:

Place the ruffle piece around the body piece so that the wrong side of the ruffle is facing the right side of the body:

Hold the two left hand needles — one part of each circular needle — in your left hand:

Insert the right needle of one of the circular needles — whichever one you’d like the knitting to end up on — into the first stitch of the ruffle as to knit:

Insert the same needle into the first stitch of the body as to knit:

Loop the yarn around the needle as to knit:

Pull the yarn through both loops:

Complete the knit stitch by taking both loops off their respective needles:

After completing about half a dozen stitches you can see where the two parts are joined:

This is the sweater after knitting all the stitches:

Here you can see underneath the ruffle:

Just a little bit more and maybe tomorrow you’ll see a finished sweater.

    Wow! That looks complicated! The last little bit of the body looks great in lavender. I can’t wait to see the completed project.

    Thank you so much for posting such detailed photos and instructions! I am almost done with the main color so I will definitely be referring back to this post when I am ready to attach the ruffle.
