Garter stitch

Many rows of the humble knit stitch = the garter stitch

Facts & handy tips

Garter stitch is the easiest stitch to make in knitting, basically row after row of the knit stitch. Easy to knit, and creates a 'wave' effect. Perfect for big chunky scarves such as as 'Foxy Roxy' and cardigans such as the 'Vivienne Cardigan'. If you're learning garter stitch as a beginner, a handy tip is to count the number of stitches after each row. This is to ensure that you haven't accidentally created new stitches.
