Knitted on Cast On
This tutorial demonstrates step by step, how to work the “knitted” or “knitted on” cast on method for beginning knitting projects. Learning to cast on stitches is the first step in learning to knit.
This tutorial demonstrates how to work the knit stitch commonly abbreviated as “k”. The knit stitch is the most common stitch in knitting. Learning the knit stitch is the only stitch required to create garter stitch, the first stitch pattern most knitters learn and a great stitch for a beginner scarf.
This tutorial demonstrates how to work the purl stitch commonly abbreviated as “p”. The purl stitch is the second most common stitch in knitting. Learning to work both the knit and the purl stitch gives you the skills required to create hundreds of different knitting textures.
This tutorial demonstrates how to work various combinations of the knit and purl stitch to create rib stitch patterns (or ribbing). Variations of rib stitches are commonly used in knitting patterns where stretch is required to create a non-curl, reversible fabric.
This tutorial demonstrates how to work rows of knit and purl stitches to create stocking stitch or stockinette fabric. Stocking stitch is arguably the most common knitting stitch pattern. Easy to knit and incredibly versatile, stocking stitch is an essential pattern for every knitter to learn.
This tutorial demonstrates how to create and measure a gauge swatch to ensure the most accurate results in a finished knitting project. A gauge swatch should be made before beginning any knitting pattern. Matching the gauge quoted in a pattern is important to ensure your finished project will end up the correct size.
