HOW TO learn the knit stitch | Tabitha Bell


Hi everyone! Today I am going to show you how to knit the
knit stitch and I have my 10.5, US 10.5, circular knitting needles and my worsted weight yarn
again and I have cast on already ten stitches. So, I am gonna hold the cast-on stitches in
my left hand and I’m gonna hold the knitting needle that I’m gonna be using to transfer
those stitches in my right hand and I’m gonna have the working yarn in my right hand. So I’m gonna wrap this working yarn around
my pinky and then insert in my forefinger like so and hold it like this, so this is
just how I hold it. I think it makes it easy and comfortable to
hold the working yarn and I’m gonna insert in the right knitting needle into the front
loop on my, on the front loop of these cast- -on stitches. I’m gonna wrap the working yarn around the
right needle from front to back and I’m gonna pull it through, like I just did, and see
how I still have the cast-on stitch down here on my left needle? I’m going to take, slip this loop from the
cast-on stitch on off of the left needle. So now it’s, the cast-on stitch is below the
knit stitch that’s on my right needle. I’ll show you that again. Insert the right needle into the front loop
on my left needle, gonna wrap the working yarn around, like so, the right needle, I’m
gonna pull it through, and then I’m gonna slip this loop off of the left needle. Insert the right needle, wrap the yarn, and
pull it through, slip off the left needle. Insert the right needle, wrap the yarn around
the right needle, slip the loop off the left needle. And see now I have four knit stitches already,
and knit stitches look like “v”s. So, insert, wrap, pull through, slip off. Insert the needle, wrap around the yarn, pull
it through, slip it off. Insert, wrap the yarn, pull it through, slip
it off. I’m going to do this for all ten stitches. And there you go! I have knit one row, and all of them look
like these “v”s because knit stitches look like “v”s and this is what a knit row looks
like. This is gonna be the right side of the work,
so the tail is on this right end, and the working yarn is on this end where I just knit
this last stitch. See? So, that is how you knit the knit stitch! I hope you all enjoyed today’s video, if you
