Garter Stitch Gauge diagram or illustration
Dear Ones,

Does anyone know of a diagram or illustration showing how to measure the gauge of a garter stitch swatch? I can find illustration of measuring gauge in stockinette but nothing turns up for garter. I am a very visual person so a picture would help.

Thanks in advance!

Susan

Usually patterns tell you to do stockinette so I'm not sure I've seen a garter stitch gauge either. Must be one somewhere.. :thinking:

Here's how I've always done it. I read it in a book once, but can't remember the book title. Sorry :( Hope that helps...
