Hi, I am very new to knitting. Someone showed me the knit stitch but I learned the rest from the great vidoes here (Thanks!). I just finished my first project - a dishcloth - the other day.
My question is about casting on. I noticed that all patterns just say cast-on. Does it matter what technique you use to do it? I learned the double-cast on (long-tail) and I'm wondering if I can use that for everything.
Also, that isn't considered row 1, correct? Row 1 would be the row after the cast-on?
Thanks so much! I am having so much fun already!
