Basic knitting techniques for jackets, sweater and more
Knitting is a craft that involves using yarn or thread to create fabric by interlocking loops of yarn with two or more needles. There are many different knitting techniques and styles that can be used to create various patterns and textures.
Here are some common knitting techniques:
Knit stitch: This is the most basic knitting stitch. It involves inserting the right-hand needle into the front of the loop on the left-hand needle, wrapping the yarn around the right-hand needle, and pulling it through the loop.
Purl stitch: This stitch creates a different texture from the knit stitch. It involves inserting the right-hand needle into the front of the loop on the left-hand needle, but from behind the loop instead of the front, wrapping the yarn around the right-hand needle, and pulling it through the loop.
Ribbing: Ribbing is a pattern that is created by alternating knit and purl stitches in a specific sequence, usually to create a stretchy and textured fabric. It is often used at the end of sweater and for necklines.
Cables: Cables are created by crossing groups of stitches over each other, creating a twisted and raised pattern on the fabric.
Lace: Lace patterns involve creating holes in the fabric by increasing and decreasing stitches in specific patterns.
These are just a few examples of the many knitting techniques that exist with models we knitted already. Learning and mastering different knitting techniques can open up a whole world of possibilities for creating unique and beautiful knitted items.
