Some Basicknitting Instructions as a Refresher

If you have followed the knitting instructions you now have a stitch in purl on theright knitting needle and the yarn is hanging, once again, in the front. Push point ofright knitting needle into the front of the first stitch from right to left. Repeat thisprocess until all stitches are on the right knitting needle.

I wanted to set out some basicknitting instructions as a refresher so here it is. Slip the old stitch off the leftneedle. Once you know these two knitting essentials you will be able to follow mostknitting instructions which are just combinations or variations of these two stitches.

Push the point of the right knitting needle in between the front of the first and secondstitches, pointing the knitting needle to the right to feed the point through the firststitch keeping it under the left needle. Repeat this process until all stitches are onthe right knitting needle. Loop the knitting yarn around the right knitting needle fromback to front, letting the knitting yarn rest between the needles. Slide the rightknitting needle down and back taking the new loop of knitting yarn from front to back,through the old stitch. It is a good idea to keep the knitting yarn draped over theright forefinger, this keeps it to the back of the work too. The knitting yarn will look like it is at the front and you will now take it to the back and start the second row oftransferring stitches to the empty right needle. All knitting instructions use basicallytwo stitches, the knit stitch and the purl stitch. The knitting yarn should be at theback of the work.

Catch the knitting yarn on the end on the right knitting needle andpull it through the first stitch to the front of the work. Start with the knitting needlewith the cast on stitches in your left hand. Wrap the knitting yarn around the tip of theright knitting needle, crossing over the two needles and hanging once again in front. Ihave a lot more information about knitting on my Knitting Instructions blog so please joinme there to learn more.

The Purl stitch will also be in any knitting instructions. Now you are getting the hang of the Doped dyed polyester yarns¬†knitting instructions. The new stitch is now on the right needle. Your knitting yarn willbe hanging in front. Now count the stitches, if they are all there, turn the rightknitting needle around and put it in the left hand. This is the first row from yourknitting instructions. Now count the stitches to make sure you haven’t dropped any andturn the work around putting the knitting needle with the stitches on in your left hand tostart the next row.
