Scarf Completed
Thanks to everyone for the help on my project. For a first time ever piece, it came together okay. The Son was thrilled with it. I'm attaching a pic of the finished project.

I'm already coming up with ways to tweak it to make a better version for next year. ;-)



Now I'm on to my next project.

Thanks again!

That worked out very well and in good, strong colors. Very good looking all around. Well done!

Did you do this as garter stitch?

Currently working on my first knitting project, as so happens it's the 4th Dr's scarf as well, my first Dr.

The project is coming along nicely, doing it using round needles.

I did have a question, I was under the impression garter stitch was a knit stitch that repeated no matter the side. For mine I've been doing a knit stitch on both sides which others have posted is stockinette and tends to curl, there is zero curl to my scarf.

Old pic note how I picked up and lost stitches in that first foot long section, the next two feet are much more uniform, as this section will be below knee level I wasn't much concerned with the unevenness of it nor the color change mishap I had there.



More pics to follow of it after another 2 feet.

Knitting every row is garter stitch. You have garter stitch.
Knit one row, purl one row, knit the next, then purl again is stockinette.

Looks excellent! Yes, garter stitch is a very nice stitch for scarves because it lies flat and doesn't curl. You can even do garter stitch by purling every row.

Yep, if you're knitting flat then this is correct.

If you were to knit in the round you only have to knit (no purls) since you're never working on the back as a rule. For garter stitch in the round you have to knit a row, purl a row, etc.

When you knit in the round and knit every 'round' (as oppose to 'row') you get stockinette. Knitting every row when working flat or back and forth you get garter stitch.
