Remember being taught to knit by Grandma?
In, over, through, off, wool forward, plain;
in, over, through, off, wool back, purl;
Ribbing holds the waist in,
finishes off the neck,
makes cuffs on the ends of sleeves.
Then there’s garter stitch –
which stretches out your scarf –
or moss stitch, much like ribbing
but the plains and purls
are staggered instead of in lines.
You can twist a group of stitches
to fancy-up the pattern,
by making a cable.
Knit one, slip one, knit two together
Pass slipped stitch over –
makes a little hole to place
opposite where you sewed a button.
Voila, you have a cardigan
