What is the difference between a garter stitch and a stockinette stitch? I know they look different but how in the heck do you knit them? Also, I have a pattern that calls for "5 garter st ridges incl cast on row" and I don't have a clue what they mean! Can someone please help or would it be better to go to a knitting class? Thanks for any help!
