Just learning how to knit
Hi! I'm just learning how to knit and have a question about double cast on. That first cast on stitch has 2 loops. Is that considered one stitch or 2 stiches when you are knitting your first row off the cast on.Thanks for your help!

Welcome!

The first cast on stitch makes two loops, and they are counted as two stitches.

Oh wow! I did not know this. I've been counting it as one.

Thanks for asking this question!
