Mom to one cute boy!

Knitting stitches? New to knitting?

I'm very knew to knitting. I just make pearl stitches into scarfs..lol. I'm reading to try different stitches. I don't know names but can anyone suggest ones? I'll then look on YouTube to learn how to do it. Or if you have a site I can go to, that would be great too! Thanks

Hi There, I am in Ontario, and we have resource centres that offer classes. You probably have one too, as they are Employment Resource Centres. The one that I work at offers all kinds of courses for upgrading employment skills and also special interest classes like knitting. Even a CERP might offer classes like knitting. Almost all the yarn manufacturers like Lion Brand, Patons, Bernat, etc. offer tutorials on their own websites. Check them out and I am sure you will find one to learn from. As far as the last slip knot, just knit it the same as you did the rest of the stitches.

there is the knit stitch which is used quite often. there is garter stitch, you knit every stitch every row. if you purl every stitch every row you'll get the same thing. there is stockin stitch, you knit one row and purl one row. there is rib, you knit 1 stitch, purl 1 stitch or you can knit 2 stitches, then purl 2 stitches. Then on the next row you knit the knit and purl the purls there is seed or moss stitch, you knit 1 purl 1 across and then on the next row you knit the purls and purl the knits. after that you can try cables http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/knitting-tips
