How to make a slip knot: your first stitch in knitting

Your knitting journey starts with the slip knot, your first stitch! Here's how to make the slip knot in a few quick steps. 

Step 1

Make a loop with the tail-end of the yarn on top.

Step 2

With your thumb and index finger, pass through the loop.

Step 3

Pinch the yarn end that is attached to the ball.

Step 4

Now pull through the loop and pull again to tighten the knot.

Voila you've made your first stitch! Simply place it onto your knitting needle and tighten it a bit so that it sits snug on the needle. Now you're all set to get knitting!
