Garter stitch


Knit ALL stitches, front and back.


Here it is, the easiest stitch in all of knitting - the garter stitch.  While some garments are constructed entirely of garter stitch, especially because it does not roll at the edges like stockinette stitch, garter stitch is often used most effectively as striping, to give a mostly stockinette garment some texture or, as pictured at left, as a border.
