Knitting Basics Part 3: Knit Stitch

This is part three in which I will demonstrate the knit stitch, English style. There is a poem that is often used to teach kids how to knit. There are several versions. Here are two:

In through the front door, out through the back, all around the house, off pops Jack.

In through the front door,run around the back,out through the window, and off pops Jack!

Here's one I found on another blog for purling or knitting:

Under the fence, Catch the sheep, Back we come, Off we leap.

I think either poem works. They give a visual cue and a rhythm that kids (or adults) can use. Try each one and see which one works better for you.
