Knitting With Looms: 'Montery Lime' Scarflette: 'No Counting Garter Stitch' technique ... On every single row purl the first 3 pegs. Then you continue e-wrapping 2 pegs & skipping 1, e-wrapping final 3 pegs in row. When you turn to go back, simply purl first 3 pegs. Using this technique, you never have to remember whether you are on a purl or a knit row for border. ALWAYS purl first pegs & knit last! That gives you a garter stitch border with no headaches or lost places.
