This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the knit one below stitch. This technique is generally used in brioche type stitches that have a thick squishy texture to them, like the fisherman’s rib. Some people get confused about where exactly below the stitch should be knitted but it’s easier than you might think.
Step 1: Insert your working needle into the stitch directly below the first stitch on your main needle, knit wise.
Step 2: Wrap your working needle with the working yarn and knit the stitch as normal, pulling the yarn through the stitch.
Step 3: Pull the worked stitch and the stitch above off the needle together.
