Beginner question

Hello all! I’m a beginner and have only been knitting about 2 months. However, I’ve already completed four projects and I’m having such fun. I’m a little confused though…when I cast on, does my slip not at the beginning count as one of my cast on stitches. In other words, do I put my slip knot on and then starting counting with “1” on the next stitch or is that “2”? I know this must be a really silly question, but it baffles me every time!!

Thanks for a response! :muah: :muah:


Hi and welcome to KH!!

Not a silly question at all…it does count as your first stitch :thumbsup:

Thank you!!! It’s too early to call my local shop and I wanted to try to start a new project.

Have a great day!!
