There are many things in life to love and often no reason to hold back. Sometimes the things we love are intricate, other times it’s simplicity that attracts. Here, I show my love for garter stitch.
Garter Love is a shawl that is somewhat more than half a circle with hearts spread on a garter body. Requiring approximately 400-560 meters of yarn, use needle size that gives you a nice lacy effect. 4 stitch markers are recommended to help you keep track of the sections. The pattern is charted.
