Where do/did you all go to learn all of the different stitches you can use on your knifty knitter? I have made a few hats and some scarfs and I'm really enjoying my knifty knitters, but as I look at patterns telling how to make different things I get confused on the different stitches. I have googled it and searched YT, but can't really find anything that will tell me all the differences. I usually just do the basic e-wrap and an occasional purl stitch. I have no idea what the basic "knit stitch" is, or the stockingnette and there are several more....can anyone help??

The stockinette stitch is a stitch used on the long looms. I know you said that you looked on youtube, but that is where I learned the different stitches. Check out Mikeyssmail I believe that is his user ID on youtube and he shows you some of the stitches. I also bought a book at Joann's called Loom Knitting Primer which shows some stitches. Also a book called I Can't Believe I'm loom knitting by Leisure arts which shows quite a few different stitches and Joanns is have a 40% off sale on all knitting books.

I learned most of them on YouTube and some in books... the knit stitch is just the opposite of the purl stitch.. you put the yarn on top of the existing and run your needle up from the bottom... grab the new stitch.. lift this off the peg and put the new loop back on the peg.. lots of the stitches you read about are a combination of stitches that are given a name...

Thanks ya'll! I will go back to YT and look some more....maybe I just gave up too soon. I think I will also try to get by Joann's and look for the books.

Thanks again!

I have been a knitter for many years and I just bought and started with the loom knitting and I thank all of you for this information as I was begining to think all I could do was the basic stitch. So once again thank you all.
