Double Wrap Stitch

This is a fairly common method of creating elongated stitches that we have used in a scarf pattern on our free pattern page.

For the purposes of this tutorial, I have used my mad Photoshop skillz to color the working yarn pink.

Ready to start the double-wrapped stitch! Yarn in back of work, ready to knit.

Insert the right needle knit-wise into the next stitch.
Wrap the working yarn around both needles (same direction as when you are knitting a stitch.)
Wrap the yarn a second time, but this time just around the right needle (in the manner of a regular knit stitch).
Pull the second wrap through (knit it!)
