A picture is truly worth a thousand words. These 2 swatches have the same number of rows. Look at that difference with the same number of rows! I hope this shows you that you just can’t replace stockinette with Garter Stitch! It also helps to explain why Garter Stitch is so thick and squishy. That “extra” yarn has to go somewhere!
This is just a sampling of what’s in our Garter Stitch PDF!
About the Instructor: Jody Richards
Jody is the founder and lead editor of Knotions. She loves poring over stitch dictionaries and trying out new stitches. And while she likes all things crafting (well ok, except that one thing), yarn crafts are her true love (and she has the stash to prove it).
She’s a serial starter-of-projects and has a serious problem with finishing things without a deadline.
And don’t get her talking about hand-dyed yarns. You’ve been warned.
