HOW TO CREATE A TWO NEEDLE CAST ON (CO)

HOW TO CREATE A KNIT STITCH (K)
The knit stitch (K) is the first basic stitch to learn and is used in all patterns. A stitch that has been knitted will have a 'V' at its base. In this video we will show you how to create a knit stitch.
HOW TO CREATE GARTER STITCH
Garter stitch is the most basic of all stitch patterns and is created by knitting every row. It is a reversible fabric that has the same pattern of ridges on both sides. In this video we will show you how to create garter stitch.

In this video we will show you how to easily pick up a dropped stitch.
HOW TO CORRECT A MISTAKE (UNDO A KNIT STITCH)

Cast off, or bind off, is an essential part of finishing any knitting project. In this video we will show you how to cast off using the standard method.
HOW TO WEAVE IN LOOSE ENDS
Weaving in is an important part of finishing any knitting project. In this video we will show you how to weave in ends by threading the sewing needle over and under the bars on the wrong side of stocking stitch fabric.

Why Make a Swatch?
A swatch is a square piece of knitting used to work out whether
you’re stitching as tightly - or as loosely! - as a pattern describes.
