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!
This is how this knitting stitch looks on the wrong side of the work, not as pretty as the right side of the work, but this picture gives you and idea in case you care considering it for a reversible garment.
