Knit every row. What could be simpler? Garter stitch was the first stitch pattern I learned as a new knitter.
Five years ago I taught myself to knit and like many beginners, my first project was a garter stitch scarf.
I still remember being unsure of what I was doing and hoping I didn't mess up, because I had no idea how to fix my mistakes.
I think it took me about a week to finish this scarf and by the end, I had perfected the knit stitch and learned how to cast on, bind off and change yarn colors. But more importantly, I learned something about myself: I love to knit!
It all began with garter stitch.
