Can someone tell me the easiest method of casting on, and whether the continental or English method is easier. I want to learn so bad, but I'm just not "getting it." I'm left-handed, and I'm a crocheter. Also, if anyone has good youtube links, that would be greatly appreciated. One thing that is really bugging me, is that the needles are straight, when I'm used to having a hook. I think it's very hard to get the yarn to do what you want it to do, without a hook to pull the yarn through.Answer Question
I hope some of these you tube videos help. I'm also trying to learn to knit but it's so hard to get the basics down well. I thought for a while I was casting on okay. I was struggling with my purl stitches. I realized I had been casting on all wrong.
