G is for GARTER STITCH PATTERNS

GARTER STITCH DOG JACKET

I've highlighted various stitches here in this blog (and remember I did NOT make all the projects pictured they are here as free patterns you can download), but the absolute easiest one works for the "G" day, the garter stitch.   What is the garter stitch?  It is the Knit stitch, in EVERY row, it even gets a little boring, but you can change colors and do some of the other things in these patterns to make it more challenging.   Garter stitch projects are great to knit in front of TV, sports events, movies, etc.

Here are three other interesting garter stitch patterns that I found (on RAVELRY of course), that you can download and make quick as an Easter bunny:
