Let’s start with some basic patterns. Before you start with a pattern as a beginner, you should know the basic stitches including the knit stitch and purl stitch. For the first, pass the right needle through the first stitch of your left hand needle. Now wind your thread over cross of two needles, over the right hand needle. Just softly pull through the loop. After that just slip over first original stitch from left needle to right hand needle. Repeat the whole process till you take all stitches from left needle to right needle.

Purl stitch when viewed from purl side of pattern. First you have to take the thread in front of the needle, then enter right hand needle in first stitch on left hand needle. Wind yarn about back of right hand needle from right to left, then just draw loop backwards which will allow sew to slip off left needle to right hand needle.
