Best Answer

Knit, Purl, Knit, Purl, Knit, Purl

Then when you are at the end of the row, turn your work and on the following row you do the exact opposite, you purl into the knit stitch and knit into the purl stitch.

* You will know when to knit and when to purl because if you see a little "bar" or a tiny little horizontal line sticking out a bit (then that is a Purl stitch) and you need to Knit into that stitch.

It will look like this:
K - P - K - P - K - P - K - P
P - K - P - K - P - K - P - K
K - P - K - P - K - P - K - P
P - K - P - K - P - K - P - K
K - P - K - P - K - P - K - P
P - K - P - K - P - K - P - K

Get it!?

Hope this helps! This is an easy stitch for a beginner and a great stitch to learn Continental knitting on (which is usually 3 times as fast once you get the hang of it!)

Don't forget to put your yarn in "back" when you knit and in "front" when you purl!
