Am new to knitting but have decided to make a tango scarf for dd as my next project. I know how to knit it, but don't know how to cast it on.

I have only ever done casting on with regular wool before ... any ideas?

thank you x

OK - it is really easy, you will find a series of holes at the top of the yarn.

Stick your R hand needle into the first hole through the front, now stick it into the next hole through the front... and so on until you have the required number of stitches... you actually don't cast on as you would recognise it in regular knitting.

When you turn to start knitting each new row, leave an extra hole. You knit using the "chain" of stitches between each hole.
