Machine Knit Lace Enchanted Edgings
This Enchanted Edging, Magic Spell, has automatic gathers.
It is so stretchy that you can steam it into a tight curve or a slow curve. I blocked this sample into a tight curve, and when it's stretched out, it makes a round ruffle.
I love round ruffles - they have less bulk at the gathered side and they drape gracefully.
Imagine this one at the bottom of a sleeve, or a skirt, or even as a lace collar or yoke.
