Double Frill Crops


I am so please with how these have turned out.... I've never tried doing a double frill on the leg cuffs before!!! They are a little heavier than a standard pair of crops, because of the extra yarn used...but that will help with the drape :) I used DK for this very reason....a double cuff on an aran pair would have made them very heavy.
I had 100g of Merino/Alpaca DK in ivory, and the same again in pink.....and I dyed them both identically and then changed colour, throughout the garment, every 9 rows. This helps avoid pooling, and just generally makes the colour scheme a little more interesting :)
