I just watched the long-tail cast-on video, very helpful and easy. I’m a complete newbie, so it was my second cast-on ever, a couple of ugly bits but that’s cause I had to start again twice and my (cheap) yarn was going a bit uncooperative. Anyway I want to do a stockinette stitch for a basic baby hat pattern for charity and I didn’t understand the bit about what row to start with. I have cast-on all my stitches, turned the needle around, now what? Do I use knit or purl for the first row that I DO? Don’t tell me which one is already there, I’ll just get confused. Just tell me what to do and I’ll do it;) hehe
knit one purl one does mean ONE whole ROW yes? not knit one STITCH, purl one stitch?
