August Pattern/Tutorial - Knitting Through the Front Loop

This month's tutorial is the knit stitch, also referred to as "k" or "K" in abbreviated patterns.  The knit stitch is one of the foundation stitches of knitting along with the purl stitch.  For both you can work through either the front or back of the loop and how you work determines your knitting style.  When I learned I learned to knit through the back loop and for some time I only knit in that fashion, however when one comes upon knitting done in a particular style or with certain types of increases or decreases it's important to know both as one may be called upon specifically.  Here I'm providing a video tutorial of how to knit through the front loop.  (I'll be adding a photo tutorial later!)

I hope you enjoy and don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more tutorials and goodies!
