With B, cast on 23 sts and knit 2 rows – three layers of ruffles. Cut B, leaving a 3" tail. With A, work 12 rows St st, begin with a knit row, end with a purl row.
** (1.) Put the ball of B to your left, with a 3" yarn end to your right. Insert right-hand needle through the B yarn from front to back, then knitwise into the first stitch on left-hand needle and knit both together with A. Continue in this manner to the end of the row.
(2.) Turn and knit 1 row with B.
(3.) Slide stitches to other end of needle and purl 1 row with A.
(4.) Turn and repeat step (1.) **
Cut B. With A, work 13 rows Stockinette st with A, begin with a purl row, end with a purl row.
Repeat from ** to ** same as for Second Ruffle. Cut B. With A, work St st until about 30" from beginning. Cut yarn; put sts on a holder.
Work same as First Section. (Try to end with the same color as the first piece so the graft will be invisible.) Graft the two sections together:
Thread yarn needle with yarn. Keeping the yarn needle and yarn under the points of the knitting needles, and holding the 2 needles together with yarn at the right of the back needle, work as follows:
* Insert yarn needle through first st of front needle as if to knit and slip the st off, insert needle through 2nd st of front needle as if to purl, but leave the st on the needle; insert yarn through first st on back needle as if to purl and slip the st off, insert yarn through 2nd stitch on back needle as if to knit, but leave st on needle. Repeat from * until all the sts are joined. Take care to draw yarn up so that gauge of grafting equals gauge of knitting. Fasten off.
Weave in loose ends of A. Tack cut ends of B to wrong side with sewing needle and matching thread.
