I have only been knitting in the garter stitch so far and would like to try the stockinette stitch. I don't have sound when watching the video so I want to make sure I have this right. Is it just knitting a row then purling a row or is there something more to it? Thanks for the help.
Yup, if you're working on straight needles, that's exactly what to do. (But if you're knitting in the round -- on circular needles or DPNs -- it's just knit, knit, knit all the way.)
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
