Your knitting journey starts with the slip knot, your first stitch! Here's how to make the slip knot in a few quick steps.
Make a loop with the tail-end of the yarn on top.
With your thumb and index finger, pass through the loop.
Pinch the yarn end that is attached to the ball.
Now pull through the loop and pull again to tighten the knot.
Voila you've made your first stitch! Simply place it onto your knitting needle and tighten it a bit so that it sits snug on the needle. Now you're all set to get knitting!
