Question on knitting pattern instructions.
I have just started knitting and I am stuck on how many stitches to cast on. The book I am using for my pattern says Aghan and then it says Cast on 138 sts (stitches). Do I actually cast on 138 stitches? It says to use stockinette stitching and to use (which is what I am using) a 29" circular knitting needle size 11. The gauge is 14 sts and 18 rows = 4".
