Hey there, the most basic stitch in knitting is appropriately called the knit stitch. I'm Vickie Howell from DIY’s Knitty Gritty and I'm going to show you the stitch that can basically get you started on your whole knitting adventure. There are two ways to do it, first I'm going to show you what it looks like. We've got this stitch, it looks like a little bit of V. there are two ways to do it, continental method and the English method also called the throw method. I'm going to show you both, doesn’t matter which one you do total preference, just want to give you the skills. The first method is the throw method, this just happens to be the method that I normally use. You're going to take your right hand needle come up through the loop and around, pull the loop through and the old stitch off. I'm going to show you really quickly how I'm holding my yarn two. I've got it wrapped it around my forefinger, and I'm using my ring finger and my pinky just to keep the tension going. Alright, ready, I'm going to show you again. So we come up through is stitch in the left hand needle, around the back needle, pull the loop through which creates the stitch on the right hand needle, pull the old loop off. One more time. Up, around, through, and off. That's all there is to it. Now for the continental method, you're actually going to move your working yarn, it will be in the left hand side instead of the right hand side. And you use your left hand to do all the work. You're just going to take your yarn, again using your pinky and your ring finger to hold the tension. Only this time you want to kind of wrap it around a couple of times. And we're going to do something called picking. So again, you want to come up through the stitch, then you're going to pick the back yarn and pull it through. You can see it creating the new stitch pulling the old stitch off. Okay again. Come up, pull it through, pull the old stitch off. One more time, up, pick it through, there's your stitch, pull it off. That’s all there is to it, now you can totally start on the project.
