Knitting 101: Learning How to Knit

Milly, our Knitting and Yarn Expert, will demonstrate the basics of knitting.

What is Cast On?

Casting on or binding on is the process of creating loops on the needle. After the cast on, you proceed with the knit or purl stitch to start knitting.

What is the Knit Stitch?

The knit stitch is just pulling a loop of yarn through an existing loop on the needle. Pulling it through with the yarn in the back creates the knit stitch.

What is the Purl Stitch?

The purl stitch is similar to the knit stitch, except you are pulling the needle through with the yarn in front.

What is Cast Off?

Casting off or binding off is the process of creating an edge so that your knitting does not ravel.

Have questions or need more assistance?
