Slip knot necessary?
Does the first cast on stitch have to be a slip knot?

No, it doesn't. What cast on are you trying to use?

I've been using the long tail cast on. I've seen videos where they say to do a slip knot first and others just start into casting on.

If you don't want the knot, try the way the videos show to start without it. I don't use a slip knot for ltco.

I've never used the slip knot for long tail unless I'm casting on with two skeins because of a lot of stitches.
