Applies The First Row Of Loops To A Knitting Needle

Applies the first row of loops to a knitting needle?

To apply the first row of loops to a knitting needle, follow these steps:

  1. Hold the knitting needle in your dominant hand. The other hand will manipulate the yarn and loops.
  2. Take the working yarn and hold it in your non-dominant hand, leaving a tail of about 6 inches.
  3. Insert the knitting needle into the first stitch of the row on the left-hand needle. The right-hand needle should now be behind the left-hand needle.
  4. Using the yarn in your non-dominant hand, bring it to the front of the work. The working yarn should be placed between the two needles.
  5. With your dominant hand, loop the working yarn over the right-hand needle from back to front. This creates a new loop or stitch on the right-hand needle.
  6. Gently pull the right-hand needle and the new loop through the stitch on the left-hand needle. The new loop should pass through the old loop and rest on the right-hand needle.
  7. Drop the old stitch off the left-hand needle, allowing it to unravel downwards until the new loop is the only loop on the right-hand needle.
  8. Repeat steps 3-7 for each stitch in the first row, moving from left to right along the row.
  9. Once all the stitches are on the right-hand needle, you have completed the first row of loops on the knitting needle.
