    Love the site, am subscribed and keep every single e mail.
    Usually I can follow the youTube vids, but this one has me stumped…..
    Do I repeat this on each consecutive row, or is the wrong side purl please?
    Many thanks,

      This is just a demonstration of the gather stitch technique. We have technique videos and pattern videos. This is not a pattern video.

      This is a technique stitch, not a pattern stitch. we are only demonstrating the gather stitch technique, that’s why there is no wrong side photo.

    This knit the two stitch gather stitch. Do you do the same method on the back side? I like the stitch and can do lots with it.
    Thanks, Sandy

      The swatch shown was purled on the wrong side rows.

    Just a question – does this need to be knit with an even number of stitches? And, if you want them offset (as you showed) do you need to do an odd number of stitches and then simply slip the first stitch of each row?

      You can use this stitch in all kinds of patterns, but for the swatch shown it was knit over an even number of stitches.

        Do I need to modify the instructions for knitting in-the-round?

        • Johnny Vasquez

          March 28, 2013

          Yes you’ll need to change any knits to purl and visa versa on the wrong side rows.

    This is not a comment, but another question.

    Above, a question was asked about you offsetting the stitch to have the grid like pattern. How do you offset the stitch in using an even number of stitches? Do you slip the first stitch was the question asked above, however you did not respond to that part of the question. Don’t you have to do something with a single stitch in order to offset and do the technique shown above? Vera
