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.
