The knit garter stitch is one of the easiest and often times, the stitch beginner knitters learn first. But don’t be bored with it’s simplicity. This stitch is loaded with texture and the resulting fabric is stretchy and reversible.
The knit garter stitch is one of the most versatile knit stitches there is. Pair it with any weight yarn, smooth or textured. The simplicity of this stitch makes it a great choice for novelty yarns too (you know the ones where you can’t see your stitches!)
