In the video, we see how to crochet using a foundation of double crochets, while crocheting in the round. However, as we learn in the video, this technique can easily be altered to work for crocheting in rows, or by using half double crochets or treble crochets. The ruffles are simply groups of double crochets worked in the posts. You’ll get the hang of this gorgeous look in no time!

Go ahead and see how it all comes together in the video below. What are you going to use your new ruffled edges technique on? Share photos with us in the comments below!
