need help with meaning of "knit under the stitch"
Hi, I'm trying to make a scarf with a waffle stitch. For one of the rows I'm supposed to knit1 and then knit under and getting the knit under has me confused. Can anyone explain it to me as a beginner?

Do you mean "Knit 1 below"? Is "knit under" the exact words they use?

You are right. The exact words are" knit 1 below". It was explained to me how to do it but when I got home I couldn't seem to get it right. I need a simple and clear explanation. All help is appreciated. Many thanks for taking the time to respond.

On this site I found it by going to the "Glossary" (on one of the purple tabs above). Then scroll down to k-b. She links to the video there.
