6 Basic Knitting Stitches

6 Basic Knitting Stitch Patterns

I’ve just been learning how to knit and it’s been so fun to see all the different stitches you can make as you go. Whether you’re “knit stitches” or “purl stitches“, here are some of the combinations you can make when you use these 2 styles to make the 6 basic knitting stitches pictured above. There’s the garter stitch, stockinette stitch, ribbing stitches, and seed stitches. There are techniques for each of these stitches, as well as the abbreviations. Find the tutorial at Vogue Knitting.
