How to Knit the Knot Stitch

How to Knit the Knot Stitch

This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the knot stitch. This stitch creates tightly knit diagonal rows of knots making for sophisticated texture. The knot stitch would be great for sweaters, hats, purses and scarves.

Materials Used in this Tutorial


Knit Outta The Box Lambs Wool Yarn

Knit Outta the Box Machine Washable Lambs Wool

This unbelievably soft wool is made from shrink treated Merino Lambs Wool. It offers the wonderful qualities of traditionally spun wool, but with the convenience of machine washing and drying. Garments made from this yarn will not shrink or fade after numerous machine washings and dryings. Made in the USA.


Addi Lace Clicks

Addi Lace Click Long Tip

Meet the latest addition to the addi Click family: Longer Lace Tips have the same sharp point as the regular Lace needles, but are just over 5 inches in length, which some knitters prefer. Each kit includes US sizes 4 – 11, along with 3 pliable blue addi SOS Lifeline insertion Cords. This ingenious set comes in a vibrant pink case.

    It would be helpful to me if suggestions of where different stitches work well would be included in the instructions for the making of a stitich.

      We usually make some suggestions for what you can make with the stitch in the written description.

    Hi johnny,
    Although you give suggestions for projects, I would like to also know the” texture” of a knitted piece, ie, drapey, heavy…. I know itdepends on the yarn but it would give a bit of an idea.
    Thanks

      It depends on more than just the yarn. It is also effected by your tension, the size of your needles, and the stitch pattern. A cable pattern knit by a tight knitter with smaller needles than suggested by the ball band in a single ply handspun will have much different characteristics than the same stitch knit with big needles by a loose knitter in a 4 ply fingering silk alpaca blend.

      We will eventually include some more identifying characteristics like these. Most likely when we launch NSAD+.

    If you make a scarf using this stitch, do you typically need to add some ribbing on the sides, or is this a stitch that lies pretty flat on its own?

      It lies pretty flat
