Novice knitter
When I start to knit a pattern I choose the size I am going to knit, then put a circle around the size. Then read the first bit of pattern and usually even the cast on numbers of stitches are for each size. The first number relates to the first size, and then count how many spaces you chose from the first number in sizes, and circle, say if you chose the third size in, then you would mark the third number in on the cast on stitches, likewise as you read the pattern and knit, any instruction that appears in the pattern, choose the third one in and circle that. Even if you stop marking the pattern after a while cause you are happy with which size marker to knit, often when I resume knitting, I forget, and can go back to the top of pattern and see what size I am meant to be knitting. Hope this helps. Cheers from Australia
