- Two wooden needles (or chopsticks)
- Medium weight yarn
- Cast on an even number of stitches on both needles. To do this, hold one skewer in your right hand and one in your left hand. Tie a slip knot around the right-hand needle, leaving a tail of yarn. Insert the left-hand needle into the loop of the slip knot from left to right. Hold both needles in your left hand, and use your right hand to wrap the yarn around the right-hand needle from front to back, then pull the loop of yarn through the loop on the left-hand needle. This creates a new stitch. Repeat this process, alternating between needles, until you have cast on the desired number of stitches.
- Knit every row by inserting the right-hand needle into the first stitch on the left-hand needle, from left to right. Wrap the yarn around the right-hand needle from front to back, then pull the loop of yarn through the stitch. Slip the stitch off the left-hand needle. Repeat this process for each stitch, going back and forth between the needles until the piece is the desired length.
- To finish, cast off by knitting two stitches onto the right-hand needle, then slipping the first stitch over the second stitch and off the needle. Knit one more stitch, then slip the previous stitch over the new one and off the needle. Repeat this process until you have one stitch left on the right-hand needle. Cut the yarn, leaving a tail, and pull the tail through the last stitch to secure it.
