Again, this is just a simple basic knitting stitch with my chick sticks here. And now, what we are going to do is we are going to start our first line. So we have just now taken the time to build this line. So now we are going to start the very first where we start now transferring the stitches from the left hand to the right hand. So you can just stretch it out if you want to, so you can easily see where the stitches are. And going into the very first stitch and stretch it out if you have to, going from the underside, pushing up. So, just like we did before, grabbing that string and going into the middle and pulling out and flicking towards you. Now, you will have the string here left on there and you will have the new one here and what you are going to do is just gently move this toward the end of your needle, so that falls off. How gentle is that?
Okay, and if worse comes to worse, you get in this position, you can just pull it a little bit tighter. So it is going to your next one. So going in from the behind, again, you will have a nice clean circle on the top, going from behind and just pull down and flick. Working with your very first line like this is kind of stiff, but I swear to God, once you get pass this particular line, these things just start falling off better, okay.
Now, I will tell you that I have done a scarf and the whole scarf rolled up on me as soon as I was getting to a certain portion away along. And the reason for that is that at the end, we have to make sure that we are not pulling the material too tight. Because by pulling it too tight, you are causing the material not to respond properly. So, it gets this slight roll to it and sometimes it can be like a scroll where literally, your product will not even sit down at you and if you iron it. It will just keep rolling back up.
So, the very end, because we are coming to the end. So this is your last one, so into the back like before around, and so what we are going to do is we are not going to pull that too tight because then you will have a problem. So there is your first successful line. I am not going to pull the end too tight because I do not want it to roll.
