Anyone can knit!

A new type of yarn has appeared in stores, loop yarn. The yarn features unique preformed loops which means when working with this yarn no knitting needles are required. All you need are your hands.

Right now, there are a least four different brands of loop yarn - Bernat Alize Blanket EZ yarn, Big Twist Loopity Loop Yarn, Red Hearts Loop-It Yarn and Lion Brand Off The Hook Yarn. Links to purchase yarn are at the end of this article.

This loopy, puffy yarn makes it extremely fun, quick and easy to knit blankets, scarfs, pillows, cowls and more. It makes knitting easy and fun for children, pre-teens, teenagers and even adults.

This is the first tutorial in our series of how to knit with loopy yarn. Please watch this video and read on to learn how to knit the stocking stitch which is also known as the stockinette stitch.

HOW TO KNIT THE STOCKING STITCH (STOCKINETTE STITCH)

ROW 1 - FOUNDATION ROW

When knitting with loop yarn you will start with a foundation row. The foundation row is considered row 1. To make the foundation row, on a flat surface count out the number of desired loops according to the pattern. The rest of the yarn is called the working yarn.

In the picture below, my left finger is at the last foundation row loop. My right finger is at the first loop of the working yarn. Loop Yarn Stocking Stitch Tutorial - Foundation Loop

ROW 2 - START STITCHING

To begin row 2, take the first loop on the working yarn Loop Yarn Stocking Stitch Tutorial - Working Yarn Loop

and insert it through the last loop on the foundation row from back to front. Loop Yarn Stocking Stitch Tutorial - Insert Loop

Position the working yarn above the piece and continue knitting by inserting the next working loop from back to front into the next foundation loop. Do not twist the yarn or loops as you work. Loop Yarn Stocking Stitch Tutorial - Insert Next Loop

Continue working across the row. Loop Yarn Stocking Stitch Tutorial- Work Across Row

After finishing the second row, do not turn the work over. The right side of the project will always face you. I also suggest at end of each row, visually look at or count the loops to make sure you have not missed any loops or you have not added any additional loops.

ROW 3

Time to begin third row! Begin again by placing the working yarn above the project. Then, insert the working yarn from back to front into each loop down the row. Loop Yarn Stocking Stitch Tutorial - Third Row

CONTINUE ROWS

Continue looping the rows in the same manner as above until the project is complete or you need to attach a new skein of loop yarn.
