Sometimes you want a different edge on your garter stitch piece. This tutorial will show you how to make a nice chain edging on your garter stitch. It is super simple. I have written out the instructions, included process photos, and even a video.

Written instructions with photos
To make the chain edging on your garter stitch, you just change the very first stitch of every row.
Instead of knitting the first stitch, hold the yarn in front of your work, and slip the first stitch purl wise. Move the yarn to the back and knit the remaining stitches. See? Super simple!
