Newbie here

I just starting knitting, and I’m soooo totally lost. Can anyone show me the abbreviations and what the abbreviations mean. Also I want to make a baby blanket for a friend, how many casting stitches do I need to begin? (did I say it right…lol)

Thanks so much,
Julia

Up in the top right corner, you’ll see a tab called “Abbreviations Explained”. :slight_smile:

To figure how many stitches you need to cast on, you first need to know the gauge of your yarn. Check the yarn label for that. Then let us know and we can help figure out how many stitches you need.

If you look above there is a place that explains abbreviations. If you come across one that isn’t listed or needs further explanation, let us know.

The amount of stitches to cast on for a blanket depends on how big you want the blanket, the yarn you’re using and the size of the needles you’re using.

So what are you planning to work with?
