I'm ridiculously new to knitting...as in this is my first ever knitting project. I did have a crochet kit when I was little but that was a bust. ^_^
Anyway the instructions state: With waste yarn, cast on 5 stitches. Slide these back to the right side of the needle, knit them again (making a five stitch i-cord). * Knit one more row with the waste yarn, and slide the stitches back for the next i-cord row.
My problem is where I inserted the asterisk in the paragraph above. How do I go from the cast on to knitting another row?
I can see all of the separate steps but not strung together. And no projects really mimic this as I am making (of all things) a shrunken head bag called a Tsantsa.
Here's the link to the original pattern (enjoy the site too btw): http://theanticraft.com/archive/beltane07/tsantsa.htm
Thanks for the help.
