Garter stitch stripes

Garter stitch stripes have a different texture than the stripes made in reverse stockinette stitch. Whereas reverse stockinette stitch stripes create a rolled bump, garter stitch stripes create a flat ridge (see Figure 10-2).

Follow this pattern to create the garter stitch stripes shown in Figure 10-2:

Cast on any number of stitches.

Rep Rows 1-16.

By alternating knit and purl rows, you create the stockinette stitch. When you work knit rows in succession, you create the garter stitch stripe. To change the width of the background, simply work more or fewer rows in the stockinette pattern; to vary the width of the stripes, simply knit more or fewer rows in succession.

To practice garter stitch stripes and produce something useful and pretty at the same time, make the Garter Ridge Scarf. You can find instructions later in this chapter.
