beginner help with tbl
Hello, my name is Chris and I'm a beginning knitter. I'm trying a pattern that has a stitch I am unfarmiliar with. It's the tbl which I understand to mean through the back loop. In context I am asked to p1, then k1tbl. Embarrasingly, I don't know what is meant by through the back loop.

I know this is a very beginner question but I am inpatient and don't want to wait until the next time I make it to the knitting parlour.

Thank you for any help you can give. Sincerely, Chris Y.

Welcome to Knitting Help!

I could say just knit through the back of the loop, but I think it would be best if you looked in the glossary. There is a tab at the top of the page that I'll link to here. About 1/4 or so down the page right after the knit stitch (k) you'll see TBL. There is a video there you can watch to see how it's done.

Also...do NOT feel dumb about asking. We all had to learn sometime!

Look on the Glossary page under ktbl and there's a video for it. Basically, a st has a leg over the front of the needle and one over the back. Most knitters knit into the front leg, by knitting into the back loop, you will twist the stitch.

Quick question...

Since Chris is in the middle of purling (his yarn is in the front) and then he needs to knit tbl, he will need to put his yarn to the back first, before knitting tbl, right? I am trying to picture this, and was thinking it might be similar to alternating for a rib pattern or something, where you have to move the yarn to front or back depending on if you're purling or knitting the next stitch.

P.s. don't feel embarrassed, this is the first time I realized the glossary had videos to go with some of the stitches and terms, lol, so thanks for this post, which pointed that out to me!

Anytime you knit Pink, you need to move the yarn to the back unless the pattern specifies differently. Leaving it in front would create a YO (yarn over).
