Learn to Knit -- Knit Stitch Video Tutorial

Learning to knit was a real milestone for me. It was something I had always wanted to try but never had anyone to show me, until my mother-in-law came to live with us for a short time about 15 years ago after breaking her knee. After that I realized how important it is to be able to watch someone knit while learning the skill yourself.

So here is another video to help you along the path to knitting knowledge! This one shows how to do the basic knit stitch.

If you want to practice the knit stitch and make something practical at the same time, get a skein of soft pretty yarn and the appropriate size needles. Cast on about 30 stitches and then knit every row until you have a piece long enough to use as a scarf. Add some fringe if you like and there you go!

The next video will be the basic purl stitch so stay tuned!

  • Hey MGM,

    I had to refresh my memory as to how to do the basic knit stich after I put down my first project for too long. Know what I mean? Thanks. It will get me back in the swing and then I'll try your method of picking up a stitch, since I've dropped a couple somewhere down the road. Oh brother. This will be a "whimsical" scarf when I'm finished.
