Knit: The knit stitch is your most basic. The two most common ways to hold your needle for the knit stitch are the English and Continental styles. Although many knitters prefer English, I like the Continental style because it’s easier for beginners.

1. Start with the empty needle in your right hand, and the yarn and needle with cast-on stitches in your left.
2. Slide the tip of the empty needle, left to right, from the front to back of the left needle, and through the loop of the first cast-on stitch. The needles will cross in the back, with the right needle behind the left.
3. Loop the yarn counterclockwise around the empty needle witvh your left index finger. Push the needle down and through the stitch, carrying the new loop.
4. Lift the original stitch off the needle in your left hand.
5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 until you’ve finished a row—then switch the needles to your opposite hands and start again.
