Knitting help please.
I have found a pattern for knitting simple flowers and I'm stuck :(
The pattern says
"First cast on 10 stitches, then cast off those 10 stitches keeping the final loop on the needle.

Using that loop cast on 9 stitches so there are 10 on the needle, then cast off again."
I have cast on the 10 stitches and cast off 9, but this is where I get stuck. I can't figure out how to cast on again? It has got me completely stumped. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Take a look at the videos under the Free Video tab at the top of the page, Cast On. Try the cable or knitted cast on and see if that works well for the flower. Sounds like a fun project to do!

The cable cast on looked a bit confusing but the knitted cast on seems to be working. Thankyou again for your help

The cable and knitted cast on are basically the same in the way they work, but the knitted cast on works into the stitches and with the cable cast on you knit between the first 2 stitches. Your working needle doesn't go into any "yarn spots" but right under the left needle in the little space between the stitches. Since you have to have 2 stitches to work it you need to knit into the single one (like the knitted cast on) to get started, then work between the stitches after that.

Both work well;I often choose the cable cast on because I like the way it looks better, but for your use either is fine.
