v. by braiding yarn or thread in a series of connected stitches either by hand, with needles or on a machine.
Knitting is really easy, I promise. It is also quite daunting when you first hold the needles in your hands or try to decipher a pattern. Once you are clear about the steps to take, the process itself is straightforward and with a little practice you can work out the most complicated patterns with the best ones! A word of caution. If you have little patience (like me), you really need to work hard to learn this fantastic craft. It does not come without effort, but nothing worth knowing, right?
First, you must understand the basic knitting stitches. This is the most commonly used stitch. With this stitch you can create a variety of projects. You want to start with an exercise pattern of, for example, 5 stitches. So use casting techniques on a previous article and create 5 stitches. These stitches are on the needle in your left hand.
Take the needle in the right hand and slide the tip into the upper stitch of the left needle. Now the top stitch should be around the left and right needle and both needles should point in the same direction. Hold your needles so that there is a small gap between the two. With the right hand, take the working end of the yarn (the yarn leading to the ball or ball) and wrap it around the right needle from back to front. To do this, move your right hand behind the two needles (on the outside of the right needle) while holding the thread, then pull it forward so that the thread is between the left and right needle.
Pretty easy, right? With this next step it will be slower and more complicated, but follow each direction carefully and you will not have any problems. Remember to take breaks when you are frustrated because you do not learn much when you feel like this:
Pull the twine cord so that it fits exactly on the right needle. Hold the needles in each hand and pull them slightly apart. Looking straight down from the tips, you will notice that the stitch you originally used to puncture your right needle now has a gap between the two needles. The next step, while still holding the thread lightly against the right needle, is to point the point of your right needle straight down into that gap and bring the tip in your direction. Now pull the right needle straight up until the stitch is released from the left needle as long as the stitch is secure on the right needle.
If you strike 5 stitches at the beginning, you should now have 4 left and one right. You have just knitted your first stitch! For the next stitch, pass the tip of your right needle through the stitch on the left side and complete this procedure.
This process will be awkward at first, but keep practicing, and soon you can knit a stitch in a steady motion.
Start next row
Many people are at a loss as to what to do when finishing a series. Once you finish a row, all the stitches are on your right needle. To start the next row, swap the needles so that the right needle with all the stitches is in your left hand. Make sure that the work thread goes in front of your project so that it lies between you and the stitches you already knit. This is called turning your work. Start working on the top stitch as in the last row. Each time you finish a row, do your work and start over again with the top stitch.
It is really important to practice until you are familiar with this stitch before proceeding with other techniques. Go to the point where you do not have to think much about your activities and the process feels familiar and comfortable before you really try to do something or learn more.
