Knitting Stitch

With SpinCraft Knitting Patterns you can use almost any knitting stitch that you want - which makes your knitting an adventure of total creativity. How does it work? Easy.

With our knitting patterns you start by measuring the person who is going to be wearing the piece. Then you take your yarn and needles and knit a swatch in your chosen knitting stitch. Now, measure your swatch for gauge and you are ready for some simple calculations to get the right fit. 

After you've done your little math problems, and are feeling confident that your finished knitting will be a great fit, you start knitting your project. And best of all--it is easy to add your favorite stitch to what you are knitting. With our patterns you are the designer. Please enjoy shopping through our patterns. You'll love our online shopping cart. We have a free knitting pattern that will help you get started with this new way to work a piece of knitting.

After you've had your first success with our designs, please try our many other patterns for hats, scarves, sweaters, vests and more. You can also download all the patterns straight into your computer. Please bookmark the spincraftpatterns.com site after you get there, so you can come again and again.

And, sign up for our free online knitting newsletter.

Knitting Stitch

Knitting is fun! 

Welcome to our Learn To Knit pages. Here you will find simple instructions for getting started with your first knitting project. Instructions are given for right-hand, and left-handed knitting. 

 

Casting On
knitting stitch

knitting stitch
Knitting is a very easy thing to do. You start out with a number of half-hitches on a needle, and then pull loops through over and over. The only trick to it is to get a good technique that makes knitting comfortable and pleasant. Start your work by slipping a half hitch onto a needle, and then use your thumb to follow that one with a series of half hitches. 14 is a good number to start with.

Knit Stitch:

This style of right handed knitting is often called American knitting. Note how the yarn is wrapped under the large finger of the right hand. Use this finger to create proper tension on the working yarn. The right needle will be used to pull a loop through the first stitch on the left needle. To get ready to do this, slip right needle through first loop from front to back. Needle inserts on left side of stitch.
knitting stitch Wrap the yarn around the point of the right needle, from back to front and then give the yarn a little tug so that it pulls down between the two needles.

All that is just preparation so that you can now slip a loop through a loop. Using the tip of your right needle, grab that new string that is positioned through your two needles and pull it solidly to the front of your work. Then slip the old stitch off. 
garter stitch The goal in learning these steps is to get to the point where you can do a whole knit stitch in one easy movement, but don't get discouraged. In your lifetime you will do billions of knit stitches and it will become second nature to you. You'll be able to do it blindfolded! 
Knit across the whole row repeating each knit stitch the same. When you come to the end of the row, turn and do it all again. You are making what is called "garter stitch."

That's the knitting stitch!
