Garter Stitch

One of the simplest knitting stitch patterns. Knitting flat: knit every row. Knitting in the round: knit one row, purl the next, repeat.

Garter stitch looks the same on both sides, and it lies flat, unlike stocking stitch. It arguably looks better in solid colours than in variegated yarns (will take some photos to demonstrate this).
