take a moment to talk a little bit about patterns there are lots of knitting
patterns out there and what I’m talking about today are knit stitch patterns and
what this is is with a series of knits and purls there are actually different
textures shapes all kinds of really cool things that now you are equipped to do
with your knitting and purling making them into knit stitch patterns so I just
wanted to take a moment to let you know now what is available to you with all of
the information that you have all of the experience that you have now knitting
and purling is paying off because you’re gonna be able to make all these cool
things so let me show you a few of the knit stitch patterns with knits and
purls that you are going to be able to knit right now let’s first take a look
at the two knit stitch patterns you’ve already been creating when you are
knitting every row in your knitting swatch you are creating the most basic
knit stitch pattern the Garter stitch when you are knitting one row and then
purling the next you are creating the stockinette knit stitch pattern I’m
going to share some of my favorite beginning knit stitch patterns that
require just these two techniques knitting and purling I’ll have links to
the video tutorials and written pattern instructions in the description below
here is the one by one rib stitch pattern and the thicker 2×2 rib stitch
pattern the reverse rib stitch pattern has a stretchy rib pattern and it’s
horizontally rather than vertically if you’re enjoying learning about knit
stitch patterns to be a favor like up this video it really helps me out and
here are two really popular knit and purl stitch patterns the seed stitch it
creates a really pretty and sturdy piece of
knitting the Irish moss stitch also called the American moss stitch it’s
similar to the seed stitch but it has a thicker texture the basket weave is
really impressive it looks like your pattern is actually woven like a basket
but it’s really just a combination of knit and purl stitches row after row the
waffle stitch it also has a really fun texture and syrup is optional a couple
more fun ones are the caterpillar stitch because the raised purl stitches make it
look like a little caterpillar shape here and the chevron stitch is really
cool you can see the zigzag pattern from those raised purl stitches make sure to

  • Hey, guys! My original video from September was inadvertently deleted from YouTube (whoopsie)! I've reuploaded it here today. Same video, same great knit stitch patterns. Bonus: You can now buy my Knit Stitch Book for $6 on Etsy ►

  • You have been very helpful in getting me started. Hope to see more knitting techniques like increase & decrease stich, short rows, and a some simple pattern/project involving these techniques.

  • I am so frustrated! Please help 🙂 I have done your instruction for the basket weave FIVE times and still can’t get it to look the same as yours .. I am not new new to knitting but not advanced at all either. I have scoured the lesson for what I could be doing wrong and just not getting it. .Thank you for your help! I am really excited to learn this beautiful stitch.

  • I keep getting loose knit on my last loop when I go to change on my knitting needle and I just can't get it to stay tight and I haven't been able to find info on it? Hope u can help

  • I’ve been knitting/ crocheting for maybe 4 years and so far, my favorite knit stitch is the waffle stitch, it’s pretty on both sides AND it’s super stretchy, not to mention it’s really simple

  • Thank You for taking the time and effort to create this book, I really appriciate it and I will be using it for my big knit projects 😊

  • I am a very bad knitter in the past, after 25 year non knitting your Seed/ Moss Stitch video was prefect I have finished learning it now, Im making a Blanket with your wisdom. Thanks

  • Thank you so much for being so informative on the different knitting styles. I will start to try using some of these styles as I knit/crochet "Prayer Shawls" for elderly parishioners at my church who, for health reasons, have become shut ins. I really like these patterns.

  • Thank you!!! It's great to finally understand that all these patterns come from a combination of just those 2 stitches. What a relief! LOL

  • Hi. I don't know what the name of the stitch I want… maybe eyelet. It has small holes. Any idea what I'm talking bout??

  • Oh yay! Great overview and showed up just when I needed it. Looking forward to watching some of your other beginner videos. Thank you!

  • I’ve been intimidated every time I try to knit because I didn’t realize just doing the knit stitch equals a garter stitch, when my goal was to do the look of 1 knit 1 purl row!! Mind. Blown. Thank you for clearing up my years of frustration in less than 4 minutes! #newb

  • I just started knitting today after searching through many videos. Your videos are the best I've found. I like how you take your time showing us how to do each step. I can't wait to learn more!

  • Made a vest with the chevron stitch and i love it! Now looking for a different stitch for the edges which will probably be the 1×1 row stitch cause my yarn is pretty thick. Thanks for your bright info on the patterns and how they turn out. I appreciate it 🙂

  • I literally started knitting like 5 days ago and its going ok but I really never knew how much my fingers would be sore after 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • I was watching your pique rib stitch and would like to help you with the pronounceation. It is a French word that refers to a weaving style. Webster's dictionary has one of the pronunciations as pee-kay as you said in the video. However, in France (I am French) the preferred pronunciation is peak, as in someone has piqued (peaked) your interest. I know this is a little point to make but for some reason it made my ears cringe. Sorry. I do like your instructions for the different knitting patterns. Your site seems to be more comprehensive than others. Thank you for sharing your skills.

  • I love your knit work. Why is that when I knit I see these invisible holes and want to rip it. is that normal to see these small see throw holes.

  • I thought I was clicking on the written directions for the moss stitch and I got this video. How do I get to the written ones? I am loving this video however and glad I happened to find it.

  • Thank you. Just started knitting again after a couple of decades. Love the easier methods of creating patterns.

  • I recently discovered your channel, and I can't thank you enough. My Grandmother passed away last year and she was incredible at knitting.
    I wanted to learn how to knit, to learn about what she spent so much time enjoying.
    I think she would be so happy that I'm carrying it on.
    Because of you, I have learned SO much.
    Thank you.

  • This is the MOST AWESOME knitting channel I have found. That includes Pinterest, FB, YT- all of it. Seriously, you are the best. 💜💜💜

  • For all knitters… I just want to say, knitting is an amazing hobby, creative, stress relieving, saves money on readymade woollen clothing which is expensive, but most of all, nothing can provide the love and comfort than a knitted warm cap, sweater, socks, cardigan, gloves or shawl more than a homemade knitted warm creation, even if there are tiny imperfections! So arm yourselves with some yarn and needles and start tiny projects you can accomplish…. Keep practicing, keep your loved ones warm and carefully store those needles after every knitting from kids and pets. I still use some of my grandmother's knitting needles! Yes, they do last a long time… So good luck and happy knitting! 😀

  • Subscribed but I'm skeptical that I'll be able to do these. I'd like to try though. Thank you for doing these videos
