Knitting Purling and Slipping Stitches

A knit fabric is made up of rows and rows of loops formed by knit stitches and/or purl stitches. Some knitters use their right hand to work the yarn; this is called the English method. Others work the yarn with their left hand—the Continental method. Instructions for both methods are covered here, along with a couple of extras—slipping stitches and joining new yarn.
