I hope you watched the cast on video? :) In the 'knitters near you' forum you may find a group near you but I would tend to just watch amy's vids on this site again and again. Watch and try and watch and try. :)When you get it right you'll be thrilled to bits.

This site has pictures, too, if that will help.

Welcome to the forum!

Sometimes it helps to have more than one resource when learning. Here's a few more to go with the videos here.

This is a great site for patterns

Are there any local YARN shops near you? They usually offer lessons. If you still can't get it after watching the videos, I recommend seeing someone in person who can show you. Don't give up!! Once you "get it" you'll knit forever.:lol:

Welcome, Shara! :waving:


It took me several tries to get the cast off to work. I had to keep pausing Amy's video...I think I worked on it for about two hours before it made sense :teehee:

Don't give up; once it clicks, it clicks!

Try, try again. You'll get it.
