I was thinking about making a scarf at some point like the scarf from the 4th Doctor in the Doctor Who series. The original scarf was knitted, which I am not capable of. I like the appearance of the garter stitch that was used and is commonly used in knitting. Single crochet is a simple enough stitch but the appearance is very different.
(Left) Garter stitch (Right) Single crochet
I understand that an exact match is not possible, but the garter stitch has those nice horizontal thin rows without the "bulk" of the crochet stitches. I don't think I can just slip stitch this, but is there some stitch or stitches that I could use that would be closer to the image on the left?
