Yarn, knitting and crocheting

Yarn, knitting and crocheting Hello, and how are you all?! As this is my first post, let’s have a moment to get to know each other, and possibly see the idea behind these posts. As you all know I’m a big fan of knitting and making your own clothes , as I own an online shop selling these kind of products. First of all, to knit, we need yarn and knitting needles or crochets if you want to crochet something, and there are many options for us to choose from.: woolen, worsted , handspun yarn, t-shirt yarn and many more. To begin with, we have to enumerate and understand some essential abbreviations about knitting and knitting patterns. They are as following : K-Knit. P-Purl St-Stitch Sts-Stitches K2 tog - Knit two stitches together as one stitch. P2 tog-Purl two stitches together as one stitch . B- Work through the back loop of the stitch. "K l-b" means: knit one stitch through its back loop, inserting the needle into the stitch from the right-hand side. "Pl -b" means: Purl one stitch through its back loop, turning the work over slightly toward the knitter, inserting the needle into the back of the stitch from the left ­ hand side, and wrapping the yarn around the needle in front to complete a purl stitch in the usual way. K2 tog-b - lnsert the needle into the back loops of two stitches and knit them together as one stitch; the same action as "k l-b" performed on two stitches at once. P2 tog – b - Turn the work over slightly and insert the needle from the left-hand side into the back loops of the second and the first stitches, in that order, then wrap the yarn around the needle in front to complete the purl stitch. Same action as "p 1-b" performed on two stitches at once. SI - Slip -To pass a stitch or stitches from the left-hand needle to the right-hand needle without working them. The right-hand needle is always inserted into a stitch that is to be slipped as if you were to purl. See you next time!
