How to Cast On – Knitting for Beginners Easy – Knitting Video

Casting on is the first step in learning how to knit. To master this skill, I recommend casting on as many stitches as you want. You can easily pull the needle out from the stitches cast on, unravel the yarn and reuse it again. 

Make sure that each stitch that you cast on is snug but not too tight. If your yarn squeaks or you’re having difficulties getting the tip of your needle in, loosen up on your tension a bit.

Don’t forget to wrap the yarn around your fingers as shown in the video. This maintains even tension on your yarn while you knit. When you knit larger projects, uneven tension becomes very noticeable.

When you’re ready, we’ll move on to the Knit Stitch.
