WHAT IS A KNIT STITCH?
A Knit Stitch is what you already are very familiar with creating. We created our slip knot and that was our first stitch in knitting. And then we Cast On more stitches.
Each of these cute little loops you cast onto your knitting needles are called stitches.
WHAT IS A KNIT ROW?
All along your knitting needle is the Knit Row. All of these little stitches on your knitting needle make up one row. You will learn a lot more about knit rows as we create knit stitch patterns.
