How to knit single loop knitting

In this DROPS video we show how you can knit single loop knitting.

Use this fun technique to make a loop scarf, loop cuffs, loop collar or why not a loopy bag?

Single loops knitted back and forth on needles:
The loops are made on the WS rows of the piece and ends up on the RS.
1st row (RS): Knit all sts
2nd row (WS): K1, * make a loop as follows: Twist the yarn over and around the left index finger as shown in video. Knit the next st by pulling both 2 threads on the left index finger through the st and leave the stitch on the left needle.
K 1 st in the back of the same st (= 1 twisted st). There are now 2 loop sts + 1 twisted st on the right needle. Lift the 2 back sts over the first st = 1 loop st *, repeat from *-* and end with a K edge st. Repeat the 2 rows.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where this technique is used by clicking on the pictures below.

Has anyone used this stitch in making a bathmat? If so, would the base be dense enough?

I am lefthanded. This video has the needle with the knitting in the lefthand and the empty needle right. This is for lefthanded people very good to see.

I love that there is no talking in these videos,just the steps. I find remembering the steps so much easier because your focused on what your watching without interruptions of what your hearing. They are the best Videos & I'm so glad i found your website today.
