20 Simple Knitting Patterns in Garter Stitch + 5 New

20 Simple Knitting Patterns in Garter Stitch  5 New

Don't you love the feeling you get when you complete a knit project?  And yet, no matter how powerful your love for that feeling may be, it can be challenging finding time to finish everything on your needles.  Thankfully, I've discovered a solution - it's called the garter stitch.  If you haven't heard of it before, the garter stitch is one of the most basic stitches a knitter can create.  Unlike the seed stitch which contains a combination of knit and purl stitches, the garter stitch is simply the knit stitch repeated over and over in each row.  While a simple motion, the result is an attractive, ridged garment that's suitable for use in a variety of projects — including this list of 20 simple knitting patterns

Whether you're a new knitter or advanced, everyone can appreciate the garter stitch's subtle beauty.  As you explore this collection of simple knitting patterns, which ranges from knitting patterns for baby to items for the home and wardrobe, I think you'll discover a new appreciate for one of knitting's easiest textures.

The links are all messed up on this page.

yes, they are. They are only taking you to the same pattern over and over again in the category they are sitting in, so for the ones I wanted to see, I put the name of the pattern in the search and can get them up individually that way.
