Needlecrafts - Knit, Garter Stitch

Needlecrafts - Knit, Garter Stitch Pattern
Garter stitch has always been looked down upon as a beginner's type of knitting. True, this is a great stitch to start with, however it is a great stitch, period.
I love any of the knit and pearl stitch patterns where you can incorporate garter for the pearl portions.
The first two garment show how effective garter stitch can be with more texture than stocking stitch, but still simplicity at it's best.
The second garment shows how two pieces, worked from side to side, come together to make up a very chic garment .

Read further for inspiration, lots of free patterns for simple Spring styles and an unusual edging stitch that can be used with any of these patterns.
