Stitch Guide: Stockinette Stitch

 Stockinette Stitch is on of my favorite simple stitches I love the way that fields of this stitch look in a garment.  Knitting stockinette flat can be trick for a few reasons:
1.) It curls, a lot.  The cast on edge curls up the bind off edge curls down, and the sides curl back wards onto them selves.  Because off this I suggest using a garter stitch boarder when knitting in stockinette. 

2.) You must know how to purl

3.) There is a wrong side to you knitting
wrong side of stockinette stitch, see all the purl bumps.
When all is said and done the stockinette stitch look great in sweaters and hats.  I like using in for a garment that has a public and a private side to it.
