Knit

What is Knitting?

Knitting is the creation of fabric by using two needles to create a series of interlocking loops.  The word "knit" comes from the Old English word "cnyttan" (to tie in a knot).  Traditional knit garments include socks, sweaters, hats, mittens, and scarves.

Knit & Purl

The two basic knitting stitches are called "knit" and "purl".  The front of a knit stitch looks like the back of a purl stitch, and vice versa.  Knit and purl stitches can be combined in endless variations to create gorgeously textured fabric.

Shaping

Knit fabric can be made in any shape, which is why it works so well for fitted garments like socks and sweaters.  The basic shape is a rectangle composed of parallel rows, but the number of stitches can be increased or decreased to make the fabric wider or narrower.  There are several methods of increasing and decreasing, which vary in complexity and are applied in different situations.
