Knit

The knit operation pulls a loop from one or more carriers through the existing loops on a needle, dropping these loops off the needle in the process. The result is that the existing loops will be wale-wise connected to the new loop.

Knitting on a front needle will result in the new loop passing through the existing loops from the back to the front. Knitting on a back needle will result in the new loop passing through the existing loops from the front to the back (also known as a back knit or purl).

Knitting without a yarn will drop the loops on a needle.

Knitting a needle with no loops is the same as tucking a needle (though it is reasonable for code to warn in this situation since it's not idiomatic).

Cloth made of all knits is called Single Jersey.
