2. How to Start

The first step in knitting is learning how to cast on. Casting on means getting the wool onto the needles. First, make sure you have enough wool for at least the first row, but ideally for your entire project.

You will then make a slip knot on your finger which you will transfer onto one of the knitting needles. Once you have one stitch on one of the needles, you will continue to cast on single stitches until you have the number required.
