after you've casted on the howevr many stitches you want take the hole of the stitch on the end of your needle and stick your other needle in the hole so know it goes around both needles. make sure that the needle with all the stitches on it is behind the other. you will do this for every knit for the rest of the row. take the yarn that is with the ball of yarn. wrap it from the back through the needles towards u. it help now if u wrap the yarn around ur 2 fingers about twice. take the needle with the new stitch on it and take it under the loop of the other one and pull it off. repeat till the end of the row. i realize that this iz confuzing. my advice is get a beginner knitting book that will teach you and pics help. that's what i have. i may be able to get you a better explaination if ume at d.girl10@ .com.
No. With most patterns the first row is the row you knit after you have cast on.
stockinette or stocking stitch means knit one row, purl one row. So four rows are knit one row, purl one row, knit one row, purl one row.
If you are alternating each stitch (knit, purl, knit, purl) the pattern is called ribbing. If you alternate each row (row 1 knit, row 2 purl) it is called stockinette stitch.
Yes, end at the END of that WS row :)
Their are two ways to knit a triangle...A. In order to knit a triangle, begin by casting on the desired number of stitches. This will be the base.ROW 1: Knit the first row.ROW 2: Decrease on EACH end of the next row by knitting two together (K2tog).Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you have only 1 stitch left. Cast off.B. Begin by casting on one stitch, this will be the point of the triangleROW 1: Knit the first rowROW 2: Increase on EACH end of the next row by knitting into the back and front of the stitchRepeat rows 1 and 2 until you have the desired size of triangle. Cast off.
that depends on what you mean by second row.
Place a marker at the end of your row to keep track of the beginning of your row. Divide the stitches evenly between the 4 needles. The first row and every odd row you will knit. The second row and every even row you will purl. Continue this until the end of your pattern. Cast off on the odd row (knitted side)
After casting on the desired number of stitches, knit the first row, but instead of beginning a new row after the last stitch, continue knitting, using the first stitch of the chain. Knit into this loop to join the beginning and the end. This is the beginning of your second round. The final product will be one long, circular row I always cast on one extra stitch, then knit the last stitch together with the first stitch.
it is an abbreviation for Stockinette Stitch also known as Stocking stitch . It is basic stitch where you knit one row and purl one back and repeat just these two rows written as Knit 1 row Purl 1 row Knit 1 row Purl 1 row
I assume you mean stocking stictch? that is knit one row, purl the next, so that you have the wavy pattern on one Garter stitch is plain knitting every row.
Stocking Stitch (knit a row, purl a row, repeat)
When you alternate between knit and purl rows (knit one row, purl one row, knit one row, purl one row, etc.) it is called the Stockinette stitch.Unfortunately, the stockinette stitch always curls at the edges, and worse, there is no easy or perfect way to fix this problem. If you have a knowledge of crochet stitches, you could crochet an edging around the scarf, but this would change the whole look of the scarf, and there is no guarantee that it would work.The best way to avoid this problem with future scarves is to knit it in garter stitch (knit every row), or another stitch that will not curl. Also, if you like the look of the stockinette stitch and would still like to use it, then work in stockinette, but at the beginning of each purl row, knit the first three stitches and the last three stitches. If you do this, remember to change the yarn to the back or front of the work depending on whether you are changing to the knit or purl stitch.
you will knit 4 rows the decrease on the 5th
The most common knit stitch used for beginners is... wait for it... the knit stitch! The other most common knit stitch is called the purl stitch. These are the two basic stitches in knitting and when they are put together in different ways, they create different patterns! When you knit every row, that's called the garter stitch and when you knit one row and purl the next row, that's called the stockinette stitch.
The best first project for most knitters is either a scarf or a washcloth. For a scarf, simply cast on the number of stitches that look about as wide as you'd like your scarf to be. It won't be exactly that width when your done, but it should be a close enough estimate and saves you having to make a gauge block. Knit all the cast on stitches all the way across the row. Turn the piece over and knit back across again. By using only knit stitches (no purls), you create a stitch pattern called "garter stitch." This stitch pattern is especially useful because unlike stockinette stitch (what one usually thinks of when picturing knitting), garter stitch does not curl. It lays flat and looks great even if it isn't blocked. Simply continue knitting each row until the scarf is as long as you like and bind off. For a good first washcloth, try this simple pattern: Cast on 4 stitches Row 1: Knit across Row 2: Knit 2, yarn over, knit across the row. Repeat Row 2 until one edge of your washcloth is as wide as you'd like it to be. Row 3: Knit 1, knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to the end of the row. Repeat Row 3 until you have 4 stitches left on the needle. Bind off and weave in ends.
Really, it does not matter. Most patterns do not specify which to start with, and if they don't, then you can start with whichever one you want.However, some patterns will specify. For example, a pattern might say,Beginning with a knit row, work in stockinette stitch for... In this case, you would knit the first row, and go from there.
Stockinette is simply alternating rows of knitting and purling. It would most likely appear like this on a pattern: Row 1: Knit Row 2: Purl Row 3: Knit Row 4: Purl Repeat for X number of rows.
Knit one row and purl one row is a stockinette stitches that is pretty much a flat look. The edges of the knitting often curl a bit, which is nice for hats and scarves, but not so good in sweaters and such.
the final stitches are called the bind off. you knit 2 then put the first stitch over the other and drop it off the needle. knit another and put the second stitch over the third . keep doing this across the row. on the last stitch, cut the yarn and thread it through thelast stitch. you have just bound off your last row.
Yes. It's the same as saying, "Complete the RS row, then you are ready to start new on the WS". It confused me too the first time I saw it in a pattern! So remember: 'end on RS (or WS, depending on pattern)'=knit that row. Hope that helps!
The moss stitch is created using alternating knits and purls. Cast on an even number of stitches. On the first row, alternate between one knit and one purl. On the next row, alternate again only this time starting on the purl stitch. Every odd row will start on a knit stitch, and every even row will start on a purl stitch. You can even cast off following this pattern!
You can either add a few rows of garter stitch (which is knit every row) or you can do a few rows of ribbing (which is knit 1, purl 1). One of my favorite boarders to put on sweaters or scarves is the seed stitch (knit 1, purl 1 to the end of the row and turn your work, then you purl the knit stitches and knit the purls and you just keep repeating that every time you turn your work)
If you are alternating rows (knit one row, purl one row), the purl row is typically a "wrong-side" row. If it is a pattern stitch, it should state somewhere in the pattern what is the front and what is the back. The back is the "wrong-side" http://handmadebyjody.blogspot.com http://handmadebyjody.etsy.com
garter stitch is when the rows alternate knit, purl, knit, purl. Since purl is the reverse of knit, for a scarf you just have to set aside a few stitches for your border on either side and knit all of them every row.
