I am a newbie to this whole knitting thing and need some help. I picked a simple (or so i thought) pattern for a scarf. I have used the videos on this site to learn how to knit and purl, but the instructions on this scarf say “K1. *K1below. P1. Rep from * to last 2 sts. K1below. K1”. I know that “K1” means knit one, right? And “P1” means purl one, right? But what does “K1below” mean?
Hi and welcome to the forum.
I know that “K1” means knit one, right? And “P1” means purl one, right?
But what does “K1below” mean?
The top link is for continental knitting, the bottom one for English knitting. The glossary here is great and often there will be a video linked.
Have fun, I’ve found learning to knit to be challenging and rewarding.
Here’s a picture tutorial for k1below, it makes nice ribbed stitch.
