Hey just started knitting yesterday and ive got the basics down so far (castin on/off, knit/purl stitch)
but some things im wondering are
Does the slip knot onto the needle count as one of the cast ons (like if they are calling for 20, do i do 19 cast ons after the slip knot, or 20)
Does the cast on and cast off count as the rows? (same scenario…if it asks for 20 rows…does that include the cast on/off rows or no).
Atm i can only really do square/rectangles…how to people form it into things like round stuff or what not…do i just form it then do i have to like sew ends together?
I have my yarn on my right and end of the string on the left, do i just cut off excess string on my left after im done casting on or leave it to the end?
Thank you all VERY MUCH for any help you can give. I’m looking forward to being a long time knitter. Im also a guy and my family finds it hilarious that im knitting but i really enjoy it so far and cant wait to finish my first project :woot:
