GARTER STITCH PROBLEM
HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP. I AM WORKING OR TRYING TO START MY LAP BLANKET, I BEEN ON THE CHAT LINE AND HAVE MADED A LOT OF NEW FRIENDS IN THE PASS FEW WEEKS. I AM HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE GARTER STITCH. I WANT TO USE IT AT THE BEGIN AND END OF EACH ROW SO THE BLANKET WILL NOT CURL. BUT I WANT TO LIMIT IT TO ABOUT 4-6 STITCHES AT EACH END. WHEN I DO A SAMPLE OF IT IT JUST DOES NOT LIKE RIGHT.

IF I UNDERSTAND A GARTER STITCH IS JUST A ROW OF KNITTING. I AM USING A CIRCLE NEEDLE, SO I START EACH ROW WITH 4 KNIT AND DO MY PATTERN AND END WITH 4 KNIT..WHEN I GET DONE WITH THE STITCHES BEENING ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE CIRCLE NEEDLE THEN I TURN THE NEEDLE AROUND, SO ALL THE STITCHES ARE IN MY LEFT HAND, AND I REPEAT THE PATTERN AGAIN. IF THAT IS THE WAY I AM TO DO IT IT DOES NOT HAVE THE PATTERN FOR THE GARTER....HELP..I AM REALLY LOSING HOPE THAT I WILL GET THIS KNITTING OFF THE GROUND... THANKS !!!!
