What is the first stitch called?

The simplest stitch combination is called garter stitch and it’s made by knitting every single stitch. You hold the needle with the cast-on stitches and knit them one by one, in the process moving them to the right hand needle.

Why does my knitting look bad?

Cause: You may not be holding the tension of your working yarn consistently. Some stitches will be loose and some will be tight, causing your knitted fabric to look uneven. Solution: If you are new to knitting, this is a common problem that will improve with practice.
