Here’s how you do it

  2. Take the yarn in the right hand holding the needles where they cross, take the yarn forward to the tip of the right needle.
  3. Wrap the yarn around the right needle from back to front.
  4. Draw the tip of the right needle back pulling the looped yarn.
  5. Slip the left hand stitch off the left needle. You have now completed a knit stitch.
