ILong stitch worked in the row below. Insert right needle through center of stitch just below next stitch on left needle. Wrap yarn around tip of right needle to knit and draw new stitch through on right needle, sliding unworked stitch and one below it (just worked) off left needle. Unworked stitch will undo itself but be caught on long stitch.

Long Stitch Needle Work

2 Long stitch worked several rows below. This is used for honeycomb pattern. Work 4 rows in stockinette stitch (knit 1 row, purl I row) before establishing pattern. Work a long stitch 3 rows (or as directions indicate) below next stitch on left needle. Draw new stitch through, sliding unworked stitch off left needle and undoing stitches below it back to new long stitch.

3 Long stitch formed with yarn over. This is used in loose-knit patterns. Knit, wrapping yarn around right needle 3 times (or more times, as directed) for each stitch. On next row, work stitches (knit or purl, as directed), using only 1 yarn-over loop for each original stitch, sliding off others to form long stitch.

Crossed Stitch

Patterns may require long stitches to be made with a crochet hook. These stitches may be in a different color or knitted together with other stitches to slant sideways or diagonally. If using a new color, attach a strand of the yarn, or use the working yarn (as shown), and insert needle into, or between, stitches as directed and draw through loop for long stitch.
