Tutorial: Make a Slip Knot

Since I've shown quite a few people some knitting basics, I thought I should share them on the site as well. Here's the first of the tutorials I will be sharing. Stay tuned for more!

. . .

The first step in any knitting project is making a slip knot. It can be done in a few simple steps. 

Wrap a piece of yarn on your left hand clockwise between the index and middle fingers, with your fingers spread about one inch apart. Pick up the back loop with your right hand (Figure A, where arrow is pointing) and pull it through the middle of the loop (Figure B).





Continue pulling the loop up with your right hand and pull down the left side until a small loop forms (Figure C), then insert a knitting needle (Figure D).



Keep pulling down, and there you will have made your very first Slip Knot (Figure E)!
