How to Knit the Gate and Ladder Pattern

How to Knit the Gate and Ladder Pattern

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.
