This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the gate and ladder stitch. This stitch combines structural columns with openwork ladders to create a balanced delicate knit. The gate and ladder stitch is a great way to add a lightness to thick yarns or a touch of structure to a finer yarn.
