Chain-Garter Selvedge Tutorial: A neat and decorative way to edge your knitting

The chain-garter selvedge is a neat and decorative way to work the stitches at the sides of a knit fabric that will not be seamed.

Before You Begin

To create a chain-garter selvedge, the first stitch of every row is slipped (knitwise on the RS, purlwise on the WS). The second and second to last stitch of every row are worked either in garter or reverse garter stitch. The last stitch of every row is worked in stockinette stitch.
  • garter stitch - knit on both the RS and WS
  • reverse garter stitch - purl on both RS and WS
  • stockinette stitch - knit on RS, purl on WS
