Gathered Stitch Knitting – Free Knitting Stitch Pattern

Gathered Stitch Knitting – A free knitting stitch pattern by knitting stitch with a beautiful ruffled, ruching and gathered effect. This stunning ruching garter stitch stripe pattern consists of rows of garter stitch with sections of gathered stockinette stitch. It is very easy easy to knit using simple knit and purl techniques, an easy increase and k2tog.

I am loving this free knitting stitch for 2017! See how pretty it is!
