The Garter Zig Zag square is another way to learn basic skills and add a square to the coverlet -- this is such a clever idea...the first afghan/coverlet I knit consisted of five panels - 5 lonnnggg panels in the tree of life, Brigid's Cable and I forget what the outside panels were -- I do remember never believing it would ever reach an end. Had I been knitting in squares such as this, instead of knitting five foot-long panels, I might have stuck with knitting and finished that blanket and kept on knitting - as it happened I lost several years when I might have been knitting... these squares are a brilliant concept
