Anyone can knit!
A new type of yarn has appeared in stores, loop yarn. The yarn features unique preformed loops which means when working with this yarn no knitting needles are required. All you need are your hands.
Right now, there are a least four different brands of loop yarn - Bernat Alize Blanket EZ yarn, Big Twist Loopity Loop Yarn, Red Hearts Loop-It Yarn and Lion Brand Off The Hook Yarn. Links to purchase yarn are at the end of this article.
This loopy, puffy yarn makes it extremely fun, quick and easy to knit blankets, scarfs, pillows, cowls and more. It makes knitting easy and fun for children, pre-teens, teenagers and even adults.
This is the another tutorial in our series of how to knit with loopy yarn. Please watch this video and read on to learn how to knit the garter stitch.

HOW TO KNIT THE GARTER STITCH
When knitting with loop yarn you will start with a foundation row. The foundation row is considered row 1. To make the foundation row, on a flat surface count out the number of desired loops according to the pattern. The rest of the yarn is called the working yarn.
The photo below shows after one row has been stitched.
To begin the next row, take the first loop on the working yarn and insert it through the last loop on the foundation row from front to back as shown below.
Position the working yarn above the piece and continue knitting by inserting the next working loop from front to back into the next foundation loop. Do not twist the yarn or loops as you work. Continue working across the row.
When the row is finished, do not turn your work. The right side is always facing you when working with loop yarn. Continue with the next row as with the previous row inserting the working yarn loops into each loop of the previous row from front to back.
I also suggest at end of each row, visually look at or count the loops to make sure you have not missed any loops or you have not added any additional loops.
Knitting with loop yarn is fun and easy. Even kids can do it!
