I'm new to knitting. I decided to teach myself how to knit after teaching myself how to crochet. I'm trying to make a cardigan for my first project. I have finished the back of my cardigan & the pattern says to leave the remaining 55 stitches on a stitch holder which I have done. & I'm supposed to be starting the left front by casting on 52 stitches. So I'm wondering how to do that & if I need to cut the yarn & tie off or not.
Anyway...here's a link to the pattern.
