Tutorial 1 - The Slipknot
The slipknot is the first thing you need to know before you can start knitting. You wont get very far without knowing this. Here's how you do it
Make the yarn into this upside down U shape
Cross the yarn over, so it looks like this
Hold onto both ends. Pull the right side of the yarn into the loop form behind
Still holding onto both ends pull the new loop tight
Put slipknot onto knitting needle and pull tight again so it is securely attached to the needle
This is your first stitch. You will know it the slipknot has worked if you can tighten and loosen it. Also if it comes undone when you pull the two ends.
