Knitters, grab a cup of your favorite beverage and as a certain comedian would say, "Let's talk" about garter stitch. For far too long it has received a bad rap. Some have even said, it doesn't look store bought. If one wants a handknit sweater to look store bought then one needs to purchase that machine knit store sweater.An easy stitch for beginners and expert knitters alike, it is a beautiful stitch. Let's face it, I swoon over a cable, aran, lace pattern but always return to the simplicity of the garter stitch particularly when it is incorporated with stockinette stitch.
Love this unisex pullover, perfect for a cool fall day.
