Left Handed Knitting

Left Handed Cast On

Knitting is a very easy thing to do. You start out with a number of half-hitches on a needle, and then pull loops through over and over. The only trick to it is to get a good technique that makes knitting comfortable and pleasant. Start your work by slipping a half hitch onto a needle, and then use your thumb to follow that one with a series of half hitches. 14 is a good number to start with.
