2.5 Knitted Ruching

I associate "ruching" with a trim of gathered ruffles or pleats. Here the term seems to be used simply as an alternative for "edging."

The 4-row repeat produces a medium-wide garter stitch border with two rows of ladder eyelets running horizontally along the top and two staggered rows of large eyelets in the saw-tooth lower edge. Four stitches are adding in the first row and are maintained in the stitch count until they are bound off in the last row.



You can download the full-size chart, verbal instructions and notes here.

Up next: I have absolutely no idea. Making sense of this Victorian knitter's patterns is proving to be considerably more frustrating than those of the previous one. My apologies for the long delays in between posts.

Could it be they intended to put very narrow ribbon through the two rows of holes and draw it up to create the ruffle effect?

Your posts are well worth waiting for and your samples absolutely delightful. Thankyou for putting the time in to give us these lovely things.

I agree with both comments- a double row of very narrow ribbon would be absolutely charming, and the riboon could be changed to vary the effect?
also, I wait for your post as well, they are well worth waiting for, and give weeks of pleasure!
thank you so much for putting in the effort, it is soooooo appreciated!

This is pretty! I've been looking for a pattern for a collar and this might fit the bill.

One of these days, I am going to knit everything you have posted! Maybe my 2013 resolution! 2012 is reserved for completing those UFO's!

I had no idea lace knitting patterns were so much fun. Thanks for breaking it down and making it look so easy. I think I'll give it a go.

Too bad that this second book is so much more difficult to 'translate'; I have come across patterns in published books that have stymied me for years, including books that have otherwise proven to be well-written.

I think this post by Franklin Habit pretty much describes it all: http://the-panopticon.blogspot.com/2011/08/yeah-im-working-on-another-column-for.html

Anyway, perhaps the ones that defy translation could be the start of a new Ravelry group. Lord knows I could post a couple of mystery lace instructions myself.

Thanks for all the work you've done on these!
