Is garter ridge eyelets reversible

No, this stitch does not look the same on both sides. But it looks pretty on both sides and can be used for projects where both sides are visible like scarves, blankets or dishcloths for example. 

Does this stitch curl at the edges

No, the garter stitch used for this stitch pattern makes your projects lay flat. Garter stitch is only knit stitches on both sides which evens out the tension in the fabric and makes it flat.

Is this stitch beginner friendly

Absolutely, with five rows of only knit stitches and one row of alternating purling two stitches together and making yarn overs this stitch pattern is easy to do and easy to memorise.

Garter Ridge Eyelets Knitting Pattern

Cast on in multiples of 2 + edge stitches if you need them.

Row 1–5: *K*, repeat *–* across the row
Row 6: *P2tog, YO*, repeat *–* across the row

Repeat rows 1–6

Why should you add edge stitches

I add two edges stitches if I’m making a seamed or visible edge kind of project. I guess that’s always when knitting flat! 

I add one stitch at the start of the row and one at the end of the row. I slip the first stitch knit wise on every row and purl the last stitch on every row. This way I ensure all edges look nice and tidy, and are easy to seam.
