Hello This is actually my first post. I’m trying to teach myself to knit (I usually crochet) and I’m wondering, I used the long tail cast on. What am I supposed to do with the tail? It’s kind of getting in my way and it looks like if I pull my work off the needles it could come unraveled very easily from that point. (Well, the end stitch would come undone at least.) In crochet I would just hide it under the stitches but I don’t know how to do that with knitting.
Also I read that some people just transfer their last stitch over to the right needle without actually knitting in the stitch (at least I think that’s what they were saying!) how would this change the look of the edges?
