What You'll Need
Before you get started, you'll need a few supplies:
- Two knitting needles (size 8-10 is good for beginners)
- A ball of yarn (medium weight is best for this project)
- A pair of scissors
Step-by-Step InstructionsStep 1:
- Hold one needle in your right hand and make a slipknot with the yarn.
- Insert the needle into the loop and pull the yarn tight.
- Continue making loops and pulling the yarn tight until you have the desired number of stitches on the needle.
Knit the first row
- Hold the needle with the stitches in your left hand and the empty needle in your right hand.
- Insert the right needle into the first stitch on the left needle, from left to right.
- Wrap the yarn around the right needle, from back to front.
- Slide the right needle through the first stitch, pulling the yarn with it.
- Slide the left needle out of the stitch.
- Repeat these steps across the entire row.
Repeat the pattern
- Once you've completed the first row, continue knitting each row in the same way.
- If you want a stockinette stitch, alternate between knitting one row and purling the next.
- If you want a garter stitch, simply knit every row.
- Continue knitting until you reach the desired length.
- Knit the first two stitches of the row as usual.
- Using the left needle, lift the first stitch over the second stitch and off the right needle.
- Knit the next stitch and repeat the process of lifting the previous stitch over the current stitch until you reach the end of the row.
- Cut the yarn, leaving a long tail, and pull it through the last loop.
- Weave in the ends with a tapestry needle.
