2 colours per row. The gathers are formed by pulling the yarn
not in use across the wrong side of the work. Twist the strands
of yarn together at the end of each row before turning and starting

When working RS pull the unused yarn across the back as you knit and twist yarns together at the ends.
When working WS remember to bring the yarn forward between needles and pull the unused yarn across the front.
It is important to get the tension right when pulling the unused yarn across the back, too tight and the result will be too narrow , just pull the yarn gently enough to take up the slack so there is no loop at the back. Try to aim for a bottom width of 10",26cm.
