How to Knit the Knit One Below Stitch (K1B)

music in video is from demo 2008 by (Latchxe9 Swing) / CC BY-NC-SA 2.0

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.

Abbreviation: K1B

Skill: Easy

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.

    It would be cool to see some examples of color knitting using knit one below. My library has this book and the fabrics in it are wonderful: http://goo.gl/CThsm
