How To Knit Through The Back Loop

"Knitting Through the Back Loop is an easy, beginner friendly stitch pattern. It's a variation of the beginner friendly garter stitch. I actually discovered this stitch pattern on accident, but I quickly fell in love with it, and it revamped my desire to knit (I am a crocheter first)! While it’s a little tighter to work with on the needles, I find I have so much more control over my stitches, and my fabric comes out much nicer than with the traditional knit stitch. This technique works with any weight yarn and respective needles - I've used WeCrochet Swish for my sample with H8/5mm knitting needles, and it's so lovely to work with!"
