Hi Brenda, garter stitch is simply knitting every stitch, every row. Easy, fun and it doesn't curl so it is good for things like shawls and scarves. It looks the same on both sides. What are you going to make?

Yep, just straight, plain knitting. The fastest pattern there is. It is great for beginning knitters because there was no complicated patterns to follow and a beginner can complete project very easily.

I made a scarf to keep DH nice and warm when he's out clearing the driveway. The Farm
