I am knitting a pinafore and I am at the part where I join for the body. It wants me to knit 25 stitches and then ‘cast on 2 stitches onto right needle’ How do I do that? The only cast on method I know is the long tail.
Go to the Cast on videos and look at the knit and cable cast ons. Put the right needle in your left hand, cast on 2 sts, then put it back in your right hand and carry on.
A bit off topic…
Sue I never noticed your signature said knitting heretic… I LOVE it!!!
Ok… back to your regularly scheduled knitting discussion ;o)
Yeah, I don’t try to get gauge, knit with large needles and like a looser gauge, so I figure I’m not quite following the conventional knitting wisdom.
Here is a link to a video for casting-on with work in progress, from Knitting at Noon. http://knittingatnoon.com/caston.html
It helped me.
Kathi, I don’t know about anyone else here but I want to give you a Big Thanks. That link helped me a lot also. :woot: :woohoo:
