With double-pointed needles, cast on number of stitches desired or called for by a pattern – normally between three and five stitches.

Knit the first row. Do not turn work.

Slide the stitches to the opposite end of the needle. The working yarn is now on the left.

After knitting a row, pull the yarn snug.
