1 Hold the nee­dle with the stitches on it in your left hand. Keep­ing the yarn in your right hand and at the back of your work, in­sert the point of the right-hand nee­dle up into the front loop of the first stitch, as shown.

2 Now wind the yarn an­ti­clock­wise around the point of the right-hand nee­dle us­ing your in­dex fin­ger. It’s im­por­tant to keep the yarn in your right hand rel­a­tively taut to main­tain an even ten­sion as you go.

3 Bring the right-hand nee­dle down through the loop, mak­ing sure that you catch the yarn you wound around the nee­dle. This cre­ates the stitch. Don’t pull the free yarn too tightly, let out some slack.

4 Push the point of the right nee­dle fur­ther through the stitch you cre­ated, then gently pull the right nee­dle up and to your left, tak­ing the orig­i­nal loop with it. You’ve now cre­ated one knit stitch. Re­peat points 1– 4 across the row.
