Let's Get Knitting!
March 5, 2010

This is all you need:

  • worsted weight yarn
  • knitting needles in size 10

 

This is all you do!

First, learn how to cast on:

  • Make a slip knot 10 inches from the end of the yarn:

- loop the yarn then take one end around the loop and through the loop (see photo 1)

  • Put the slip knot on one knitting needle. This is your first stitch. (see photo 2)

  • Take the other needle and slide it under the yarn. (see photo 3)
  • Then take the long piece of yarn, pull it from behind the two needles and up between them.
  • With the needle on the right, catch the yarn you have just placed between the two needles (see photo 4). This is your second stitch.

  • Place this stitch next to the one already on the left needle.  It will look like photo 5!  Now you will do the same steps 3 through 5 until you have as 15 stitches. (see photo 6)

Way to go! Next week we will start a knitting project!

Keep practicing!
