Jeanne shows us how to knit one below. This is a knitting technique that when done with two different colors of yarn will create vertical stripes of color and a reversible fabric. We hope you enjoy it!
How to Knit One Below (right-handed, English):
*Repeat rows 1-4 as many times as is desired for the size of your work. This is the basic use of the technique.
The abbreviation for knit one below is k1b and to purl one below is p1b.
Only turn once both working yarns are on the same side. While one working yarn is on one side and the other on the opposite side you slide the stitch back to the other end of the needle to work the stitches with the second yarn.
This stitch can be worked with one solid color to give a honeycomb effect.
This is a difficult stitch to repair when you make an error. It is highly recommended that you use lifelines in your projects. Please look for a new video on lifelines, what they are, when and how to use them.
