Beginner Knitting Stitches

These are the knitting stitches or stitch patterns all beginners must learn once you have learned to knit and purl. They are essential and you will use them countless times.

Stockinette (also known as stocking stitch, stockinette stitch)
Abbreviated St st, when knitting back and forth knit one row, purl one row. Continue in this manner.

When knitting in the round, knit every round.

Reverse Stockinette (also known as reverse stocking stitch, reverse stockinette)
This is abbreviated Rev St st. It is worked exactly the same as stockinette. The only difference is which side is considered to be the right side (the side that will face the public). In this case, it is the purl or bumpy side that is considered the right side.

Garter Stitch
When knitting back and forth, knit every row.
When knitting in the round, knit one round and purl the next round.
