Step By Step

Step 201

1.

Cut a 10cm length of yarn, it's sometimes useful to use a different colour to the one you are working in, so you can see it clearly when your knitting.

Step 202

2.

Fold the yarn in half and tie it in a knot, leaving a loop a bit bigger than the circumference of your needle.

Step 203

3.

Work to the place you want to add your yarn marker, then slip it onto your right needle.

Step 204

4.

Continue knitting until the end of your row.

Step 205

5.

When you reach your yarn marker on the next row, simply slip the yarn marker from the left needle to the right needle. Make sure you don't knit your yarn marker!

Step 206

6.

Continue knitting in this way, slipping the yarn marker on every row.

This is how you do it
