As we have seen, the first step in starting any knitting is a set of rings on one of the spokes. Typed thus the rings are called loops. Each loop has the shape of the letter V, and consists of the upper part, called a head loop, and two side bars, which are called the right and left columns or the front and rear thread loops.
The front loop
There are two main loops: 1) the front loop and 2) the reverse loop.
Face loop is an ordinary loop. It serves as a basis for any kind of binding. It is formed mainly by one of the following two ways.
1 way. On the left needle is formed by the initial number of loops, i.e. loops dialed on it and the thread is behind the needle. The end of the right needle is introduced into the middle of the first loop, grab the needle behind the working thread, put on the right needle and get a new loop. With left needle, dropping the loop, and the newly formed loop remains on the right needle.
Thus, receive the first front loop. For each subsequent loop and repeat the same movement. So knit until until all the loops on the left spokes will be removed on the right. Thus obtained loop form a front row.
This method of knitting the front loop corresponds to the first method for knitting reverse loop, which is described below.
2 way. In this method of knitting the front loops of thread extending from the index finger, is also back, but with the difference that in this case, the end of the right needle is introduced from the front into the front thread loop of the left needle and the thread extending from the index finger, take the right needle, hold under her and removed the noose.
This method of knitting the front loop corresponds to the second method of knitting purl loops.
