The knit stitch and the purl stitch are the two basic stitches that all pattern start with. The knit stitch you start with the left handed needle going under the stitch on the right-hand needle. With the purl stitch, the left-hand needle goes in front of the right-hand needle with the yarn also in front, you then hook twist and pull through the yarn. I have created a video to help with the instructions. Please excuse the bad camera angle, my camera man was not listening to me.
* Unfortunately my video is not uploading to Youtube at this time, as soon as it is available I will post it*
