Increasing by casting

Hi, I am a beginner and have a pattern to make a baby bib. It says to proceed in stocking st and cst on 5 sts at beg of next 4 rows. Can anyone tell me if that just means to increase as norma.


When you cast on like that in the middle of your knitting most people use the “backward loop” cast on. It’s also known as single cast on.

You can also do the knitted cast on, whichever you find easier.

thanks so much for the information. I appreciated it very much

Happy knitting
