Here it is – the pattern and video tutorial for brand-new knitters. This tutorial will teach you to knit, and get you started on your first project at the same time. Pattern includes links to 7 instructional videos.
This tutorial covers all of the basics, which will set you up well for future projects! We learn slip knot, casting-on, knit stitch, purl stitch, binding off, pattern reading, and how to alternate knits and purls in the same row.
