I just learned how to knit a couple of days ago. I’m hooked now. I want to knit my first garment. I want to make a baby blanket. I will do my gauge first. The pattern I’m reading states to cast on 132 stitches. What am I counting? Is each loop casted on considered a stitch?
I know how to cast on…but it doesn’t seem that a 132 stitches would fit on the needle when I cast it on. I’m sure I’m way off on this…so if someone can explain it to me in words that a newbie would understand, I would appreciate it very much.
Thanks so much. I’m expecting a baby in 6 weeks, so I would love to make a blanket for him.
