Subject: Knitlet - the 10th one

Hello Friend,

I'm so delighted to knit with you today :)

We are diving into the world of Estonian lace gathered stitches. Wait! It's not as hard as nupps - I promise. 

Estonian gathered stitches are easier. Way easier. There are many ways and styles, and today we are seeing one of them.

For this swatch, I used Malabrigo Sock yarn (yep, relentless, I know) and 3 mm needles (US 2,5 / UK 11).

Here's the swatch:
The pattern is worked over 1+6+1 stitches and 8 rows. The pattern itself is quite simple, but you have to be careful with gathered stitches. They tend to be forgotten.

For this swatch, I casted on 38 stitches - 3 for edging, 32 for the pattern (total of 5 pattern repeats,) and 3 for edging.
