    Ahhh…thank you so much! I wish I found this two weeks ago! I have just taught myself to knit and NO ONE said on YouTube (at least the videos I looked at) to knit in the pearl, or pearl in the knit, OR to bring the yarn forward or backward!! I know it’s probably soooo basic to others, but for me this was great! And all the pictures too! I’ve crocheted forever, but wanted to finally learn to knit. Thank you for all the detailed pictures and instructions…soooo very helpful! I appreciate it! 🙂

  3. Thank you this was so helpful! knitting for the first time and nowhere would tell me how to transition from one stitch to the other!

    Yes, thank you! I’ve been trying to teach myself to knit and working on patience. 🙂 This is a BIG help. I look forward to checking out your boards on Pinterest.

  5. Thank you so much for the idiots guide to how to do this!! I really got stuck and so many tried to say but not show me how to do this and i have to say i ended up with a knotted pile of wool!!

    My hubby will be dead chuffed i can knit his hat now and it will look just like a shop bought one yay!!!

    Thank you so much for this great tutorial. Like others, I didn’t realize I needed to bring the yarn forward/back … you wouldn’t believe the crazy knots! Thanks for unraveling the mystery for this newbie knitter. 🙂
