Knit in Stitch Below

k in st below

This stitch is completed in a similar fashion to the knit stitch except that the stitch directly below the current peg is knit and the wrap on the current peg is dropped. This stitch is occasionally, though rarely, used in place of a k tbl stitch.


The trick to doing this stitch is to ignore the wrap on the peg and while knitting the stitch brought up.

  1. From the inside of the loom, lift the stitch directly below the current peg up with your knitting tool.

  2. Place the wrap onto the peg.

  3. Bring the working yarn in front of the peg, above the new wrap.

  4. Place the knitting tool under the top wrap on the peg in the groove.

  5. Turn the knitting tool up in the groove and under wrap.

  6. Grab the working yarn by circling around the outside and then around its top catching it as you slide the tool down the groove of the peg. This will create a new wrap.

  7. Grab the new wrap with your fingers and pull it up to take both wraps on the peg off.

  8. Place new wrap in your fingers on the peg.

  9. Pull the working yarn to tighten the new wrap on the peg, if necessary.
