The Knit Stitch Video Tutorial

Posted By Smockity Frocks On June 1, 2010 @ 8:00 am In Crafts,How To,Smockity's Reel Life,Tutorial Tuesday | 8 Comments



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.

Now, it’s your turn. Do you have a tutorial you would like to share?

Remember, a tutorial includes step by step instructions, PLUS pictures or a video. Link to your specific tutorial post below. If you include your blog name with a little description, it will give readers an idea about your tutorial. (Example: Smockity Frocks-How to Cast On)
