I've been told perfection is boring. Well, I'm certainly not boring (just ask my friends) and I'm definitely not perfect (just ask my kids)! Because of this I have a standing policy of rewarding people who nicely bring an error to my attention with a free single pattern download from my Ravelry pattern store.

The Queen’s Garters

I  am a big fan of garter stitch.  It’s an easy fabric to make–in fact The Ubiquitous First Garter Stitch Scarf is usually the first thing a new knitter attempts.  But the best thing about garter stitch is how it plays with color.  Whether your yarn has long, gently changing swaths of color, is hand-painted, or  if you’re simply creating stripes from your stash of remnants, garter stitch will make the colors pop!  

Five years into my design career I looked through my publications and realized I had quite a few garter stitch patterns to my name.  When the phrase “The Queen’s Garters” occurred to me I realized a collection was destined.  I  cleaned up the older designs considerably (because face it, I was totally winging it when I started out), polished the newer designs up a bit, and consulted with my muse for a few new patterns, too.  I hope you enjoy them.  Happy Knitting!
