    Do you know what a “double garter stitch” is?? Saw a hat that is knit using that stitch. Stitch looks different. Any information would be appreciated. I just Love your videos!!

    I found it in Barbara Walker’s Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns.
    Preparation Row – Knit, wrapping yarn twice for each st.
    Pattern Row – Knit first loop fo first st only, leaving second loop on needle; *knit this second loop tog with first loop of next st, wrapping yarn twice and leaving second loop on needle; rep from *.
    Repeat Pattern Row only.
