Where do I start knitting?
When you’re first starting out, try to do multiple sessions in a short time period — a good beginner’s pace is about three times per week. Give yourself time to learn the following techniques: casting on, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, decreasing, increasing and casting off.
How do you knit first row after provisional cast on?
Take the waste yarn and do a chained or crochet cast on. Then work those stitches with your working yarn – this is your first row of the pattern. It’s easy to do, but you should have a crochet hook of similar size than your knitting needles, and your waste yarn should also be close in thickness to your working yarn.
