Knit One in the Row Below

You have probably come across the direction, "knit 1 stitch in the row below" before; it is often used in textured stitch patterns, because it causes the fabric to pucker slightly.

1 Holding the working yarn at the back, insert the right needle from front to back into the stitch, directly below the next stitch on the left needle.

Note: Be sure to insert the needle all the way through to the back before knitting, so that the stitch above becomes caught up by the new stitch.

2 Wrap the working yarn around the tip of the right needle and knit as usual, sliding the stitch above off the left needle at the same time.
