"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"
"With the page open, right click on your mouse, this will open a new window, in the new window scroll down to and click on print. That will take you to print review, in print preview change "all" to just the pages that the pattern is on and click print. Using the cut and copy feature to paste the document into another program for printing is actually a violation of international copyright laws, but printing directly from the page is permitted. Hope this helps someone. Happy knitting!"

Watch and Learn
Make a slip knot and insert one needle into the stitch. This is the first stitch of your cast on row.
Hold the needle with the slip knot on it in your non-dominant hand.
Insert the other needle into first stitch on left needle as if to knit.
Bring the yarn over the working needle, wrap yarn, and draw it through the loop.
Then, take this new stitch that's on your working needle and slip it onto the needle with your cast on stitches.
Repeat steps 3-6 until you've got the required number of cast on stitches for your pattern.

Slip Slip Knit - slipping a stitch means to transfer a stitch from the left needle to the right needle without working it. Slip as if to knit, Slip as if to knit next insert left needle behind both knit together - makes a left slant decrease.

I love the two needle casting on video. I have been using the butterfly or slingshot method and have always had a problem with casting on too tightly. This method solves that problem. The instructions are very clear. Thank you. Great job.

I have a pattern for knitting a hat. Do not understand (Face Opening) Row 1 K 18 sts. bind off next 22 sts. k to end of row - 18 stitches on each side. Is this talking about 3 needles to do this? I have 58 stitches cast on my needles. Row 2 to face opening turn cast on 22 sts, turn end of row - 58 st. please help firstname.lastname@example.org

On the first row you knit 18 sts next b/o 22 sts knit the next 18 sts. Row 2 knit 18sts next cast on 22 sts knit 18 sts then turn. This only requires 1 needle for your sts to be on worked on back forth.
