Knitting is a centuries-old craft, practiced out of necessity to create clothing to protect people from the elements. Today, knitting is a more casual craft, with everyone from artisans to casual novices finding appeal in the variety of techniques. When a new knitter looks at all the yarn and patterns available today, it can be overwhelming to figure out how to start knitting. But here at Knitting Daily, we don't want this to get to you, remember; even the most accomplished knitters were once learning to knit.

Knitting is simply the act of combining a piece of thread with two needles to create a piece of fabric. Unlike weaving; knitting does not require a loom or other large equipment, making it a valuable technique for a culture that is constantly in motion. The origins of knitting lie in the basic human need for clothing, with pieces dating back to the 11th and 14th centuries CE. In the early 21st century, this technique saw resurgence in popularity but with modern twists in technique and approach.

"The Purl Stitch"

Once you've conquered the knit stitch, you will be ready to move on to its counterpart, the purl stitch. When you are working the purl stitch, it is important to be able to identify the working yarn, so stitches are not accidentally dropped or added. Interestingly, when you purl an entire row, you are also knitting a garter stitch. By combining one row of knit stitch, and one row of purl stitch, you create the imminently versatile stockinette stitch, used in many knitting patterns.

Learn how to cast off knitting using this simple binding off technique.
