For any knitting project you are starting, the FIRST thing you must do is cast on. Casting on is a term that describes the process of getting your yarn on to your knitting needle. There are many different ways to cast on; in this video, I show you how to do the long-tail cast on.
Get your knitting needle and yarn ready and let's get started :) This is definitely a beginner-friendly tutorial!
