The knit stitch is one of the two basic stitches which form the structure of all knitting patterns.
Used on it’s own to knit both sides of a row, it will form “Garter stitch”.
Following a pattern or chart, this stitch will be indicated as a “K” followed by the number of stitches to be knit.
One of the most popular stitches, “Stocking stitch” is obtained by knitting the right side row of stitches and purling the wrong side.
Combined alternately with the purl stitch it can be used to form ribbing or moss stitch, among many others.
