WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS for STOCKINETTE STITCH
Cast On Any Number of Stitches
Row 1 (Right Side): Knit All
Row 2 (Wrong Side): Purl All
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until your knitted piece is the length you desire.
Please note that on the Stockinette Stitch, the ends tend to curl up, so in the video, I added the Garter stitch on the first and last 2 stitches of each row.
