Garter Stitch Color “Blips” with Lorilee Beltman
Garter stitch groupies get your groove on with this charming and simple technique for adding color to this fabric by carrying strands of contrasting color vertically from row to row. Donʼt worry, the yarn management is easy even with multiple colors going at once. Freely add your new-found technique to garter-rich projects like EZʼs Adult or Baby Surprise Jacket, or simply highlight a garter stitch detail on a garment. Students will learn to apply the technique to existing patterns. The samples wil inspire you!
