In this hoodie, the shirt hem edge is finished with a black and white striped ribbed knit band.
I like ribbed knit bands, but I wanted to try something new.
If you look at this diagram, you will see how I used the rib knit bands at
different levels to create interest and a fun surprise in the back of the shirt.
There are two basic ways this can be sewn.
First, use a backer base and sew the individual ruffle layers to the base.
Vary the length of the ruffles and stack them on top of each other from the thinnest to the widest.
