GARTER STITCH TALL JACKET

For most people learning knitting, garter stitch is generally the first experience. It is because the garter stitch technique is the easiest way to knit. It is a technique of knitting all the stitches all plain or all purl. In some cultures each stitch is called a tooth. Garter stitch can be used in every kind of knitting project. You can knit anything like a blanket, hat, jacket, scarf etc.

Garter stitch doesn’t look thin but it gets into various shapes when you change your wool number or knitting needle size.

Materials I used:

I designed a tall jacket and using garter stitch I made diamond shapes and put together. I used middle thick mohair yarn and size 5 knitting needles.

Pattern:

The whole jacket was knitted with garter stitch technique. For the diamond shape at the bottom edge, I made 31+1+31=63 stitches. Every ten rows the middle 3 stitches are knitted together and decrease. When all stitches are done, you pull off the yarn and again you knit 63 stitches knit like before. Totally you make 5 diamond shaped motifs. For the upper row motifs, you decrease 29+1+29 stitches from the lower ones. And garter stitch continues decreasing 3 stitches every 10 rows.
