Title: Knitting - How to do a purl stitch, and a stockinette stitch
Post by: Sister Wolf on July 06, 2009, 01:51:08 PM
This video starts by showing a piece that has thus far been "knit stitched", then shows you how to purl.  If you purl all "odd" rows and knit all "even" rows, you will create a "stockinette stitch".

ok, correct me if I'm wrong here...

in knitting parlance, say you wanted a square that was 10 cast on stitches by 10 stockinette stitches...how would that be written down? I'm having a lot of trouble with the nomenclature and acronyms in patterns.

And thank you for starting this thread!

Cast on 10 st

Row 1: P10
Row 2: K10

And so on for however many stitches there are in the series.  If it has a border, it might start off by saying, "cast on 10 st.  K 2 rows.  [Row 1 and all odd numbered rows: K2, P6, K2; Row 2 and all even numbered rows: K10] repeat "[]" until square is 2 rows from being finished.  at that point, K 2 rows."

Or it might say: 10 rows stockinette st
