3) Hold left needle still in left hand, and move left fingers over to brace right needle.

4) With right index finger, pick up the yarn from the yarn ball

5) Release right hand’s grip on the needle, and use index finger to bring yarn under.

6) Return right fingers to right needle, and draw yarn through stitch with point of right needle.

7) Slide point of left needle into back of new stitch, then remove right needle.

8) Pull ball yarn gently to make the stitch fit snuggly on needle. You have now made one stitch (called casting on), and there are two stitches on left needle.

3) Slide the right needle down, and then bring the tip from front to back through the stitch, bringing the yarn with it.
