We love A Year of Techniques so much. We hope you’re enjoying the journey toward increased cleverness. If you’re one for dipping in and out of organized education programs, this month’s project is particularly juicy, easy fun. Jump in. Lean in. Get in. C’mon!
Martina Behm’s brand-new pattern, the Wood Warbler Cowl, has no obvious beginning or end. Elegant. Clever. With pointy bits.
How does she achieve this infinite loop?
She grafts the beginning and end together in garter stitch.
Maybe you’ve had a shot at grafting stockinette stitch, also known as Kitchener stitch. This month’s technique is similar but not the same. Jen’s video up top explains exactly how to do garter stitch grafting.

This month’s project means we get to welcome the marvelous designer Martina Behm to MDK. Welcome, Martina! As eternal promoters of the joy of garter stitch, we applaud this clever pattern that takes garter stitch on a new and fascinating path.
