Casting on to a belt ring

I’m very new to knitting. I’m trying to start a belt that is labeled EASY. But first I need to learn in step-by-step detail how to cast on to a belt ring before I can start knitting.


Does that EASY pattern give you any indication how you should? I’d have to think on this one.

If it has directions, maybe we could break them down to step-by-step.

The first thing that comes to mind is crocheting over the belt end, and then picking up your stitches that way. If you know how to crochet, I can post better instructions if you are interested.
