How many stitches to cast on?
What are the rules to know how many stitiches to cast on ?
I'm a lazy student and I am weak in following instructions and also because I don't find the exact size on the patterns I find or they r nt free.
I usually use long tail cast on, but what is the usage of the long tail? Do I need to leave more than 2" of tail? Because I find anything more than 2" is troublesome while I'm knitting the whole garment
I learnt that I should round the yarn on my needle for 20 times then use at length to get four times more in order to get 80sts, but it turns out I usually leave too much yarn unused so it seems to me this method won't work ?!?
Thanks for your sharing and time!!
