71  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting terms, welcome for the non-knitters on: March 12, 2006 08:09:08 PM
I'm a bit of a newb knitter. I've mastered the basics and have really even tension, but theres something I just don't get.
To me this seems incredibly basic, and imperative to know in order to do any advanced pattern, but how the heck do you knit a row after having knit AND purled in the above row? Wherever I have changed from knitting to purling there are three stitches twisted together where there should be two seperate ones, and when I change from purl to knit there is an extra loose stitch. I've looked on every knitting help site I could find, thinking it should be a beginer thing like learning how to do stockinette, but this just never comes up or is covered! Please help, this is getting frustrating and I don't have time to go to the local yarn store.
I'm using the regular western method of knitting, just incase that matters. Thanks for any help!

The wispy bits are made from spirals, also known as a poets ruffle, seen alot on old shirts. It won't look the same if you just gather a rectangle!
You could probably find a dress pattern with these ruffles on the skirt, they were very popular two years ago.

there is this butterick pattern B4449, which would be easy to adapt the ruffles from

Would you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be willing to share the picture files for this?
My girlfriends birthday is next week and I know she would absolutely LOVE this! Even more than the original star wars DVD box set, and she wants that alot. XD
And her science teacher would be HIGHLY amused.
If not I'll just make my own approximation of it I guess.
