The Double Garter Stitch

Double Garter Stitch Knitting Pattern (Reversible)

About this Stitch Pattern

The double garter stitch uses yarn overs in a unique way to create a unique fabric. While similar in method to the garter stitch, this textured fabric consists of deep ridges of stitches. This technique takes a little practice to master, but the result is a squishy, fluffy fabric that’s perfect for cowls, scarves, and blankets.

    Oh, I love the look of this one! I’m always on the lookout for stitches that will make a fabrics that will lie flat, but that also have a nice texture to them. I like to make small blankets/mats for kitties & I’m eager to try this one out for that! Thank you so much!
