Knitting follows some structures and one side of the knitting seems dissimilar from the other. The knit stitch is shaped by creating loops that are intertwined with one another and one after another. When one looks from the knit side of a pattern, the knit stitch looks like little “v”. To structure a knit stitch people use one needle drag a circle of yarn through the presented stitch on the additional needle.
In the knit stitch, one has to hold two needles in his hands and has to put in the right needle from front to back into the first stitch on the left needle. Then keep the thread at the back and bring it over the tilt of the needle like a counter clock. Again, pull the thread down and hold it with the right needle.
The purl stitch looks like brick face, when you look it from the purl side of a pattern. One holds the thread in purl stitch to the front of the knitting. One has to insert the right needle from back to front into the first stitch on another needle. With the right index finger, you have to enfold the thread down and round the right needle like a counter clock. Thus, you will be able to form a purl stitch.
