Basic Cast On (how to start knitting)


this is the Knitting cast on I make my
slip stitch I make my round there pass my yarn through the loop there it goes
let’s make that slip stitch again we make a circle we pass the yarn from the
back to the front there it goes my slip stitch so now I put my needle through
and I have my yarn I tighten it I take my other needle put it from the front to
the back as if to knit I am knitting that stitch I am NOT taking it off the
needle it is coming to the front I make my ‘t’ I pull the stitch and it goes the
left hand needle goes to the front and grabs that stitch from the bottom to the
top bottoms up there we go again we are going to knit
that same stitch we make our ‘t’ in the back we knit it bring it to the front do
not take that stitch out just pull your stitch put your left hand needle from
the bottom to the top there we go so let’s do that again
from the front to the back we knit our stitch here it comes
this is not going anywhere we’re just pulling that stitch there we go bottoms
up from the bottom to the top. Once you know
how to do this it is very easy very fast to make just push it pull it
through there we go bottoms up and it’s just very fast thing to do you
have a lot of control about the amount of stitches you want to make no worries
about whether you have enough yarn to cast on just keep knitting keep casting
on I will do it slower bottoms up there goes my needle around bring it to
the front here it goes around bring it to the front pull it bottoms up
there we go again knit it bring it to the front and bottoms up
there we go very nice very easy very neat
