basic knitting tutorial

September 3, 2012

I’ve uploaded some videos to show you the basics of knitting. The video above shows you how to cast on. This is the first step before beginning any knitting project.

The Knit Stitch is the most commonly used, basic stitch in knitting. First cast on the stitches and then Knit Stitch the first row. 

The Purl Stitch is basically the opposite of the Knit Stitch. These stitches are frequently used together in knitting patterns.

The final step when knitting is to bind off. Binding off removes your stitches from the needles.

Be sure to check back tomorrow. I will be posting a DIY project you can make using these knitting steps!
