I'm working on a baby sweater for a friend and I want to add ruffled cap sleeves but don't know how to crochet ruffles!  I've Googled for patterns but no luck.  Any ideas?

Usually, if you increase alot, like two stitches in each stitch the row before for a couple of rows, it'll just ruffle up on it's own.  I'd experiment and see what you like the look of them best.  I you don't have many rows to work with, try three or four stitches in each stitch.  Sounds totally cute, btw.  Will you post a pic when you're done?

I made an afghan with a ruffled edge. The directions for that are:

1 sc around (3 sc in each corner); next round: 3 dc in each sc around (6 dc in each corner).

Once you do that, it's a ruffled edge. With the sleeves, you may not need to do the sc row/round (I needed to because it was a granny square afghan).

HTH

Here's my finished product.  The photo doesn't do the color justice-- it's really a pretty lime green.

That turned out really cute, great job!
Did you make the pattern up, or is it from a book?  I really like the stitch pattern.

Thanks!  I combined two patterns from Crochet for Tots to come up with this one.  The stitch is a sort of modified shell.
