Miso Scarf by Shannon Okey (aka Knitgrrl) Garter stitch doesn’t get nearly enough respect. It’s versatile, pretty, and shows off many different yarn styles well. Why “Miso”? I’m a giant fan of miso, not just as soup, and am currently learning to ferment it from scratch. Miso seems plain and boring, but it adds a LOT to anything you use it in… just like garter stitch! This would be a great starter project for teaching a new knitter, or for using up scraps of similar yarn.
