There are 2 basic stitches in knitting: the knit stitch and the purl stitch. Today, I would like to show you the knit stitch.
While you are watching the video, here are some things to remember:
- Keeping your index finger on the stitches closest to the ends of the needles, like I do, will help prevent you from dropping stitches.
- Bamboo knitting needles provide a little more resistance than metal ones. This too will help prevent dropped stitches.
- The rhythm may feel awkward at first, but, with practice, you will find it becomes more natural.
- Resist the temptation to pull the stitches too tight. This will make it more difficult to jab the needles in through the stitches.
