Every Saturday I will share with you a new stitch.
Today's stitch is: Stepping Garter Stitch.
This pattern stitch is reversible; and is more textured on the right side; the garter stitches run diagonally in the other direction on the wrong side against a background of reverse stockinette. Great for sweaters, scarves, throws, pillows etc. You need a stitch number multiple of 8 + 2 edge stitches. Repeat the pattern between the * as many times as you like.
