new knitter help with jacket pattern
Hello,

This is the first time I am attempting to make a jacket. It is a Debbie Bliss pattern and I am stuck on how to cast on new stitches at the beginning of a row. I am not sure what method to use the pattern states :
Cast on 6 sts at beg of next 6 rows and 18 sts at beg of following 2 rows. 124 sts.
K 32 rows.

So I am assuming on each of the first 6 rows you cast on 6 stitches each time and then on the next 2 you cast on 18 each time. I am just not sure how to go about casting on.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi. if you are able to watch the videos here, there should be one for a knitted cast on. This is the way I usually cast on stitches at the beg of a row.

Thank you for your response. Do you mean the videos on the knitting help website? If so, is it just like casting on when you begin a project? I can follow the video if that is the case, I just wasn't sure if the working yarn should be from the already knitted section or from the new yarn.

Use the yarn you've been working with; this is like doing multiple increases to the stitch count and you'll be adding them to the already knit stitches.
