When making a knit stitch, make sure that the yarn is to the back of the work.

Insert the point of the right hand needle into the stitch to be knitted from left to right and from front to back.

Making a knit stitch - stage1

Wrap the yarn round the point of the right hand needle from behind the needle and then bring the yarn to the front between the two needles.

Making a knit stitch - stage 2

Pull the yarn through the stitch to form a loop on the right needle and allow the old stitch to drop off the left needle.

This way you transfer the whole piece of knitting one stitch at a time onto the right hand needle.

At the end of the row, change the knitting into the other hand set up for the next row.
