Garter stitch is basic, but garter stitch is epic.
Creating a new design is playing with colours and texture. Garter stitch is one of the best simple stitch to show off the dyer work. With its bumpy texture, it allows to mix the colours and showcase every shades of a yarn. Dont’t you love a good garter stitch pasture?
This one will be a large one. The Alpages shawl is worked from the bottom up. After the lace border, the shawl body is entirely worked in garter stitch short rows. Simple short rows. No wraps, no double stitch, only simple knit and turn short rows. So perfect for the brainless and relaxing knitting I need these days!
