Garter Stitch Revival: 20 Creative Knitting Patterns Featuring the Simplest Stitch
Interweave Magazine Editors
Featuring a foreword from knitwear designer Holli Yeoh!
Garter stitch is the first stitch pattern we learn as knitters--and now, we celebrate the beauty and sophistication of this simple stitch with Garter Stitch Revival.
In this gorgeous collection, each project highlights garter stitch in its detail work, as a supporting role for other stitches, or as the star of the show. In projects such as Be True Fingerless Mitts and the Flapper Cloche, the beauty is in the details created with the use of the garter stitch. In the Beachcomber Braided Poncho, the Santa Monica Cardigan, and more, you'll discover how perfect the garter stitch can be for offsetting other stitch patterns. And when used as the main stitch in designs such as the Festival Halter Top and the Autumn Evening Shrug, the texture and lovely repetition result in stunning finished pieces.
Whether you've always loved the garter stitch or you're returning to an old friend, the twenty gorgeous projects in Garter Stitch Revival certainly show that it's a classic for a million beautiful reasons.
