Today is going to be about knitting. This will be the first part of the explanation series! Next week it will be about crocheting.
I guess knitting is one of the most known techniques in crafts. Many people can knit and it’s an old technique. Woolly socks, scarves, mittens and beanies are items that are often made by knitting.
For knitting you need yarn and knitting needles. There are plenty of different types of needles. Double pointed needles, circular needles and regular needles. There is also different stitches, loops, purls, colored knitting, etc. The two stitches in knitting are loops and purls. From the other side loop is a purl and purl is a loop, so when you turn your work the other side is loops and other is purls. There is also different methods for decreasing, knitting two together, purling two stitches together and slipping. You can increase as well. First when you start to knit you have to cast on the loops and after that you start knitting rows.
