    I have watched three videos of how to on this stich and was not able to
    follow but you have made this so clear ! Thank you, thank you !

  • Jamasie Washburn says:

    Thank you very much for this video. I’m a visual learner, and reading from
    a book doesn’t help. You have at least one male knitter following you here
    now.

  • Lynn Tucker says:

    @wolfdogt The slip stitch makes the edge flat.

  • Lynn Tucker says:

    Second: every stitch should be pulled apart like in the video. You stretch
    the two needles as far apart as you can forcing them to stretch the loop,
    making the loops floppy. You cannot set up your stitches like you want to
    knit smooth and fast. You have to work on each stitch as complete action
    alone, not prepped so you can quickly go on to the next stitch. It feels
    very choppy in the action but it works. Continued in next comment

  • Lynn Tucker says:

    Last: tight stitches are created by knitting too much on the tip of the
    needle. Slide each stitch you create right along the shaft of the needle
    past the taper of the tip and your stitches won’t be soo tight. Hope this
    helps.

    hey! you are great explaining!! thanks for the video!

  • nick kennedy says:

    Thanks for the help. The only problem I have is trying to get the three
    stiches on at the begining. I seem to have the yarn to tight. Is there a
    way to get around this or am i doing something wrong? YOu have been a great
    help.

  • Joliefemm says:

    Thanks for this video. I started following the instructions from a book of
    patterns for dish cloths and got to the point of doing the KPK all in one
    stitch and had no clue how to execute that. I appreciate your video. Thanks!

  • NoUsefulComment says:

    Thanks so much. I know where my yarn should go but couldn’t figure out the
    pathway – pull the needles apart!

  • Suzeqte says:

    Thank you so much for clarifying the trinity stitch – i should have looked
    here first!

  • hang01000 says:

    Thank you very much

  • alkinney484 says:

    This cleared everything up for me! I watched several other videos and
    couldn’t figure out where I was going wrong. You’re absolutely right, I
    wasn’t paying attention to where my yarn was, and my stitches were
    multiplying at an alarming rate. You spelled things out clearly enough for
    a beginner like me 🙂 Thank you!!

  • krystilmist says:

    Nice explanation on the video. I think I’ll be hearing your voice in my
    head for a long time, WHERE DOES MY YARN GO???

  • Lynn Tucker says:

    LOL I know what you mean. When I teach classes for newish knitters I end up
    hearing that phrase in my sleep. LOL

  • wolfdogt says:

    Hey Lynn- fantastic video! I was just wondering if I need to do that slip
    stitch and knit at the end of the row before the border as well?? Thanks in
    advance!

  • LadyIlonwick says:

    thank you so much! I was having so much difficulty with this until I
    watched your demonstration! I just started knitting again and couldn’t
    figure out what I was doing wrong. (was forgetting to bring my string
    around and adding that stitch you warned about, yikes) I’ll make sure I
    remember from now on lol. You helped me make a beautiful headband, after
    about 7 years of not knitting a thing. Thank you again!

  • fallenshadow5782 says:

    Amazing video!!! You demonstrate so slowly it’s perfect!!! Thank you so
    much!!!

  • Lynn Tucker says:

    The trick to knitting complicated stitches so you don’t have the yarn too
    tight is like this: you first don’t wrap your yarn around any fingers to do
    an automatic knit or purl. Knit like you don’t know what to do with the
    yarn you are going to knit with and leave it free hanging until you need to
    use it to work a stitch. This will make it so you have not created tension
    with the yarn tail you will knit with. Continued:

    Thanks Lynn 🙂 very detailed in describing the stitch. Thank so much 🙂

  • Zillanxio says:

    THANK YOU for posting this – I’ve watched several tutorials for this
    stitch, but all of them either demonstrate too quickly for me to follow, or
    fail to explain what they’re doing. Your tutorial is simple to understand,
    and I can easily see what you are doing. Thanks again!

  • RichInNFPA says:

    @LynnTucker That explains why I like knitting. I was a computer programmer
    before I retired. (and, yes, I’m a guy) 🙂

  • nick kennedy says:

    Thank you so much. I will give it a try. Do you get many comments or
    questions from male knitters? Thanks again

  • Martin Skok says:

    Great stuff your a great teacher

  • Lynn Tucker says:

    I don’t know how many male knitters follow along with me here. I In my real
    life circles I have quite a few male knitting buddies. Anyone into research
    or computer programming or development of any sort has the mindset for
    crafting. Plus knitting was a male craft originally. Men knit fishing nets
    as a daily routine in areas where fishing is prevalent.

  • Lee F says:

    Good video but the way you explain where the yarn goes makes me feel dumb.
    It’s waaaay over kill. Before you move on to something as advanced as this,
    knitters need to have knit and purl down and understand where the yarn
    goes. If you haven’t mastered the basics, don’t move on to something more
    difficult.
