In this style (most common for beginners), the yarn is tensioned in the right hand.


Start with your working yarn behind the right-hand needle.

With the yarn tensioned in the fingers of your right hand,

  1. Insert the right needle into the first stitch on your left-hand needle from the front to the back.
  2. Cross the needles and pinch them with your left thumb and pointer finger to stabilize them. Don’t drop the yarn from your right hand.
  3. With your right pointer finger, wrap the yarn counterclockwise around the back of the right-hand needle.
  4. Use the needle tip to pull the yarn back through the loop on the left needle.
  5. Let the stitch move off of the left-hand needle and on to the right.
