  1. Not a knitter but those bonnets are absolutely gorgeous. I love the unique designs and the clasps on the back. I also LOVE the fact these are Cozey from from start to finish in handmade individualism. I really love all of your work and the book is phenomenal. Keep up the awesome work!

  2. I love garter because it doesn’t require any purling – I’m not a fan of purling! And I love the texture of it too. The way I see it, it’s a win-win

  3. I’m a crocheter, not a knitter, so I can’t comment knowledgeably on garter stitch. But I adore the bonnets; they frame the face perfectly, and can be worn with a ponytail! Awesome!

  4. Let me count the ways I love garter stitch! If I knit garter stitch flat, no purls and I don’t really have to look at what I’m doing so I can even read while knitting. It’s squishy and thick and warm. It shows off pretty yarns because of it’s simplicity. It makes a good substitute for ribbing on hats and other edges. I love the way a garter yoke looks on a sweater. I’m probably forgetting some things, but I do love myself a good garter stitch!

  5. Oh gosh, who doesn’t love garter stitch? I love it because it is so beautiful and squishy, and shows off thicker handspun yarns so beautifully. I love it because it is a palate cleanser after harder, lacy knits, yet never ever boring.

  6. I love the garter stitch too. It is easy and good for the soul to just keep it simple and relaxing. Love your blog and cool ideas too.

  7. I love garter stitch because it is squishy! I love the thickness of the fabric, love the texture, and I do like the way it looks.
