Knit Stitch

(To begin your knitting, start with a cast-on to establish loops on the needle.) Knitting consists of pulling a loop of yarn through an existing loop on the needle. Pulling it through with the yarn in the back creates the knit stitch. Pulling it through with the yarn in front creates the purl stitch. These are the foundation stitches of knitting. Try out a below knitting method, and its associated purl method, and see which feels the most natural to you. How you hold the needle and yarn can be quite individual, but in the end it all creates the same fabric.

Knitting in the Round

Knitting in the round is a skill that will open up a world of knitting to you. Hats, socks, mittens...! A couple of things to know about knitting in the round: 1) You'll need to use a gauge swatch that was knit in the round too. Your flat-knit swatch probably won't be accurate. 2) You can't do standard intarsia knitting (a method of knitting with multiple colors) in the round. The easiest solution is to just work an object flat and seam it if it's an intarsia project.
