Picking Up Garter Stitches


I know there are lots of ways to pick up stitches, but I thought I would share what I pick up because it creates a pretty seamless join.

 Along the edge of the garter stitch there will be little ridges with two sort of loops if you hold your work like the photo above. I pick up the front loop of the ridge with my left-hand needle through the back of the stitch & knit into it as a normal knit stitch.

My experiment in-progress; more photos upcoming : )
