WORKING WITH OPERADARTE
OPERADARTE is a ribbon yarn with black (or white) mohair picot along one edge and square eyelets along the opposite edge. While it can be knitted alone, it is more frequently used as a carry-along yarn to create dramatic ruffles on a garment or accessories knit from a classic yarn.
To add a ruffle, simply pick up Operadarte [with tip of the needle inserted into a square eyelet] and knit it together with the main yarn. The pick-up should be made in each stitch in that
row, inserting the needle into EVERY OTHER square eyelet on the Operadarte (or as indicated in the pattern).
NOTE: Piece is knit on circular needle to accommodate the large number of stitches.

SHAWL
With A, cast on 273 sts.
Purl one row.
NOTE: For a smooth finished edge, join B at the beg of each Ruffle Row by folding the end of B under and inserting the tip of the needle through the first and second eyelets for the first st. Knit the row as directed until the last st, cut B, leaving 3
eyelets intact, fold B under, inserting the tip of the needle into the 2nd and last eyelets to end row.
