This hands-on class looks at various easy forms of knitted embellishment and edging, specifically ruffles, ruching, and pleats.

Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
