Please help... casting on stitches are too tight
I just started knitting 2 weeks ago and am having a very hard time getting my cast on stitches to move from needle to needle. I am using circular needles and I"ve had to rip out everything I've started because my stitches won't move.


I have tried both wooden and aluminum needles... please help!!!

Try casting on over two needles held together, then remove one needle when its time to knit.

Your tension will work itself out as you practice!
