Scrolling through past posts to see if your question has already been asked and answered. Postings are in chronological order of the date when the topic was first posted. You can also use the SEARCH function to look for past posts about your question.

If you don't see your question addressed, or if you have additional questions, post a New Topic rather than replying to an existing topic. This will increase the likelihood of getting responses to your specific question. Also, try to describe your specific question in the topic subject line rather than "New Knitter" or "Help."

Beginner question - Casting on.

So I am obviously very new to knitting, but I still feel silly asking this naive question.
If the pattern says to cast on 73, do you include the original slip knot? or not? (I am looking to begin a seed stitch border of a sweater and am very confused..)
Please help!
