Making the knit stitch is really very easy. It is basically the same thing as a crochet slip stitch. The difference is that your stitches are held live on a cord and look like an upside down U, instead of the V that crocheters are used to seeing.
- Keep your working yarn in the left hand and to the back of your project.
- Simply insert your hook through the stitch.
- Yarn over, and pull the yarn through the stitch.
- Ta-da, you did it!
- Keep working across the row, with the loops you’ve made staying on the needle, and eventually passing on to the cord (if it is a large project).
- When you reach the end of the row, simply slide the remaining live stitches from your needle and on to the cord.
- You can either remove the cord from the hook, leaving the cord in the project like a lifeline, and attach a new cord to the end of your hook. Or, you can slide the stitches closer to the end (making sure you have the clip attached), turn your work and work the next row.
And here is a little video I made to help walk you through the steps. Please leave me a comment if you have any questions. Thanks!
