Slipped stitch in garter stitch – easy knitting tutorial

Following from last tutorial, what about if you want neat edges on your scarf?

The solution is easy: start your rows with a slipped stitch.

This is how you make a slipped stitch in garter stitch.

To practice your stitch you can knit a scarf in garter stitch.

Watch last week’s garter stitch tutorial to learn if you haven’t already.

Cast on some stitches on your needle. For instance 35 or 40 stitches, stretch them a bit on your needle to see if that’s the width you’d like your scarf to be.

If too wide, undo a few. If too narrow add a few more stitches.
