Stockinette stitch – easy knitting tutorial

So far we’ve learned to cast on, garter stitch, slipped stitch and bind of or cast off.

Now you’re ready to learn purl.

Let’s start!

Now put into practice all the knitting you’ve learned so far.

Cast on some stitches on your needle. For instance 35 or 40 stitches, stretch them a bit on your needle to see if that’s the width you’d like your scarf to be.

If too wide, undo a few. If too narrow add a few more stitches.

Knit as many rows as you need for a scarf in stockinette stitch and when done bind off the piece as you learned above.

It’s aimed at the total beginner.

This week we’ll start learning a single cast on in preparation for garter stitch on the next video.
