The Chain stitch is one of those easy knitting patterns, ideal for beginners.
Similar to the Hail stitch, it’s a horizontal pattern, not reversible, but it doesn’t curl.
A four-row repeat stitch, adorable, delicate, great for knitting baby clothing and accessories (hats, cardigans, blankies, mittens, etc).
This is the perfect stitch to practice the easiest decreases and increases that exist in the knitting world, combined with basic knits and purls.
Grab your needles and let’s go!
CO: Cast on
RS: Right side of the work
k2tog: Knit two stitches together (this is the easiest way to decrease one stitch)
kfb: Knit front and back. Knit one stitch as usual, don’t drop it, and knit it again through the back loop (this is the easiest way to increase one stitch).
BO: Bind off

CO an even number of stitches.
1º row: K across
2º row: K2tog across the row (please note that after this row, you’ll have half of the stitches you started with).
3º row: Kfb across the row (after this row is finished, you’ll have the same amount of stitches you cast on).
4º row: P across
These four rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.
When finished, BO knitwise, after a row 4.
