SIMPLE STEPS KNIT STITCH
Knit stitch is where most knitters start. It’s easy to learn, and garter stitch fabric (which is knitted every row) is lovely and squishy, although it is naturally shorter than stocking stitch (knit one row, purl one row and repeat). You’ll find a tutorial for purl stitch on page 92. 1 Insert your right needle diagonally, front to back into the first stitch on your left needle. Your needles should be roughly at right angles. 2 Wrap the working yarn around the right needle clockwise and pull this yarn through to the front of the stitch with your right needle. 3 Let the old stitch fall off the left-hand needle, keeping the new stitch on the right-hand needle. That’s your first stitch done!
