How to Knit1, Purl1

“Knit 1, purl 1” is a basic knitting stitch pattern that is commonly used in a variety of knitting projects. It is also known as the “rib stitch” or “1×1 ribbing”. 

To create this pattern, you alternate knitting one stitch and purling one stitch across each row. On the next row, you do the opposite and knit the reverse of the purl and purl the reverse of the knit stitches as they appear along the row.

When you knit a stitch, you insert the right-hand needle into the front of the stitch from left to right, wrap the yarn around the right-hand needle, and pull the right-hand needle back through the stitch, slipping the old stitch off the left-hand needle.

When you purl a stitch, you insert the right-hand needle into the front of the stitch from right to left, wrap the yarn around the right-hand needle, and pull the right-hand needle through the stitch, slipping the old stitch off the left-hand needle.

The result of this pattern is a stretchy, reversible fabric that is often used for cuffs, collars, and edges of garments. It is also a good stitch pattern for beginner knitters to practice, as it helps develop even tension and consistency in their knitting.
