Double Stockinette is just that, double, which means that both sides look alike. The Double Stockinette features the classic V-shaped stitches on both the back and front sides of the work. Super squishy! This is a thicker, more squishy, and very stretchy fabric.
Is stockinette stitch the same as purl?
The knit stitches on the right side of stockinette are wider than the purl stitches on the wrong side. The purl stitches are also longer than the knits. So, while the knit stitches are pushing out horizontally (because they’re wider), the purl stitches are pushing vertically (because they’re longer).
Is stockinette stitch tighter than garter?
Garter off the needle is more compressed than stockinette, and the fabric lays flat. However don’t be fooled by how it looks off the needle. Add any weight or gravity (like my cute bamboo top) and garter can stretch a LOT. Which means it not only gets longer, but gets tighter.
