  • How to knit . Knit Stitch - Step 1
    Step 1

    Hold needle with stitches in left hand; insert point of right needle in first stitch, from front to back, just as in casting on.

  • How to knit . Knit Stitch - Step 2
    Step 2

    Insert the point of the right needle, from front to back, into the stitch and under the left needle.

  • How to knit . Knit Stitch - Step 3
    Step 3

    Hold left needle still in left hand, and move left fingers over to brace right needle.

  • How to knit . Knit Stitch - Step 4
    Step 4

    With your free right hand, pick up the yarn and wind around the right needle- from the right to left, then between the two needles.

  • How to knit . Knit Stitch - Step 5
    Step 5

    This step now differs from casting on: Return right fingers to right needle, still keeping a hold of the yarn, and draw yarn through stitch with point of right needle. Pull the new stitch / loop to the right and slip loop on left needle off, so new stitch is entirely on right needle.

  • How to knit . Knit Stitch - Step 6
    Step 6

    This completes one knit stitch! Repeat Steps 1 to 5 in each stitch still on left needle. When the last stitch is worked, one row of knitting is completed.

  • Step 7

    Repeat this process for every stitch on each row until your work has reached the desired length. Once there, time to cast off! And sew ends in…

  • Step 8

    The Garter Stitch Scarf

    Make 1 slip knot.
    Using 7.5mm knitting needles, cast on 15 sts.
    Row 1: knit every stitch
    Cont. row 1 until scarf is desired length.
    Cast off sts loosely.

    Repeat Steps 1, 2 and 3 until one stitch remains; now cut yarn from ball, leaving at least 15cm tail end. Remove the right needle from the last loop and tread the yarn through it to secure with a knot. Thread tail yarn end into yarn needle and weave end into several stitches along the cast off edge to secure it.

    And CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve just completed your first knitted scarf ☺
