From the Stitch Description: This simple stitch, when worked in fine yarn, makes the most delicate and lacy fabric imaginable. It is ideal for cobwebby stoles, scarves, bedjackets, peignoirs, fancy baby clothes, and overskirts for evening wear. It can also be worked in fine cotton for lovely tablecloths, luncheon cloths and place mats. Actually, it is nothing but garter stitch - plain knitting - but it is certainly a garter stitch with an aristocratic air.
