Casting on stitches in middle of row

I dont understand when it says in the middle of a row to cast on “so many” stitches. Is this like adding stitches or something else? I dont know how to do this. I’m a newbie if I didnt already give that away! :wink:

It IS adding stitches. You can use either a backward loop cast on or a cable cast on. Both have videos in the Basic Techniques section.

What are you making?

I am making a dog sweater for my best bud! It has buttons in front thats where the casting on stitches came in. Thank you for your reply. i’ll have to check out the cable cast on, I’ve done a cable stitch on this sweater. Thanks again!! :smiley:
