Garter Stitch

Garter Stitch

If you have read the previous posts, you should have all the skills you need to make the Garter Stitch. It’s probably the most basic knitting stitch pattern ever, but I find it to be quite charming. It doesn’t curl, I like the texture, and it’s pretty fast to make. Ravelry even has it’s own Garter Stitch fan club called FLOGS – For the Love of Garter Stitch.

You can work the Garter stitch over any number of stitches. In a nutshell you cast on, knit every row, and bind off. Ta-da!
