Knit 1 Below and Purl 1 Below for the Loom

K1b and P1b Stitch Video Tutorial

Knit 1 Below

I had seen the Knit 1 below in needle knitting patterns but like many loom knitters I became familiar with this stitch on a knitting loom from a book by Kathy Norris, Loom Knit Stitch Dictionary. where she uses the technique for the fisherman’s rib. It also requires you to know how to do the purl one stitch below.  This can be a bit confusing and I understand why Michelle Irby, one of my YouTube subscribers asked that I show her how to do the technique.I have done my best to show Kathy’s instructions on video. I hope it is helpful.

Please note that I’m not trying to teach you the fisherman’s rib stitch, I am only attempting to show you how to do the knit 1 below and the purl 1 below technique.

I hope this helps Michelle and everybody with the same question. Thanks for asking !

    About how long is a normal scarf? I’m a beginner in loom knitting and your video is very helpful.

      Hi Hazel, the normal size of a scarf is the height of the recipient – so if you’re 6’tall – your scarf should be 6′ long

    Would the new knit & purl hook work well with this stitch?

      Depending on your style of knitting – yes it can
