Knit Stitch

The knit stitch is one of the two basic stitches (the other being purl).

When viewed from the Right Side (RS) of the knitted fabric the knit stitch is a smooth “V“, when viewed from the wrong side (WS) the stitch has a horizontal bump.

Step 1: Insert the right needle into the next stitch on the left needle, moving from front to back (the point of the needle is directed away from you).

Step 2: Wrap the yarn clockwise around the tip of the right needle, creating a new loop.

Step 3: Draw this loop through the original stitch, creating a new stitch on the right needle.  Kick off the old stitch from the left needle.

Repeat steps 1-3 to the end of the row.
