How to Knit the Stockinette Stitch
The stockinette stitch is one of the most basic and most common knitting stitches. The stockinette stitch can be worked with any number of stitches. Sometimes this stitch is referred to as the stocking stitch.
Instructions (Flat Knitting)
Row 1: Knit all stitches (right side)
Row 2: Purl all stitches (wrong side)
Continue these two rows - knitting all stitches in one row and purl all stitches in the next row.
Instructions (Knitting in the Round)
Knit all the stitches in every row.
NOTE: The stockinette stitch has a tendency for the edges to curl.
