My 12 year old daughter (whom heretofore has declared that she will never learn to knit as it is “too girly”) has actually decided to let me teach her to knit. She saw me working on my bear for the Mother Bear Project and she decided that might actually be something worth learning to knit for.
I Tivo’d a Knitty Gritty on knitting with kids and the lady did a single cast-on. Krysten picked that up pretty quickly, but it looked odd to me and I found it weird to knit from. My question is, would it be best to let her use the single cast-on or should I try to teach her the long tail cast-on instead?
