How do I start knitting a scarf?

I just picked up my knitting tools again for the first time in several years. I was able to remember how to finish the scarf I had started but I can't remember how to start a new one. I do remember it being a little tricky. Does anyone out there know how? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Sunny

  • its hard to describe but the term is called casting on. You can search it on the net for directions with pictures or even how to video. Once you see it you will be like OH YEAH! NOW i remember!

  • AH .. Easy! I went to Walmart and in the craft section is a package of looms .. They are knitting looms .. Circle, Rectangle (all sorts of shapes and sizes) and it is SOOO easy to use!

    I got it for a 7yr old girl and she does Hats and Scarfs .. Easy and FUN
