Normally we knit from right to left, so when I say "knit backwards" I mean knitting from left to right. Here are two videos that I made looking at this process.
Knitting Backwards - The Steps
- The stitches you are going to knit should be on the right handed needle.
- Insert the Left Hand needle through the back loop of the stitch you want to knit.
- Wrap the yarn over and around the LH needle (wrap the yarn over the needle where the yarn starts from behind the needle)
- Bring the old stitch over the new stitch, releasing the old one and leaving the newly formed stitch on the right handed needle.
Video 1: Knitting Backwards (Left to Right) - In this video one row is knit backwards, followed by a forward knitting row. There is then a second knitting backwards row.
Video 2: Knitting Backwards (Left to Right) - This video shows one row knit backwards. The sample is part of an Entrelac project I was working on.
