Note: This stitch is the opposite of a knit stitch and produces a bump on the front.
Step 1: Place the working yarn in front of the peg and below the existing loop.
Step 2: Place your loom tool above the loop on the peg and slide it under the loop, grab the working yarn and pull up a loop.
Step 3: Holding the new loop on the loom tool, pull up and remove the loop on the peg.
Step 4: Place the loop that is on the loom tool onto the peg allowing the loop that was removed to fall behind the peg. Pull the working yarn gently to tighten the loop on the peg.
Step 1: E-wrap and knit pegs 1 and 2.
Step 2: Move loop on peg 2 to peg 1 and knit off.
Step 3: Wrap peg 1 again and knit off.
Step 4: Move the stitch on peg 1 to peg 2 (the empty peg where peg 2 was). This will now be called peg 1. To bind off additional stitches, e-wrap and knit peg 2, then repeat Steps 2-4 until all stitches have been bound off. For last peg only, do not knit the extra stitch. Cut yarn and pull through.
