Honey Bee tutorial cont.

Originally uploaded by Pinyon Creek Stitchin'.

The cast on stitch is done the same way that you would cast yarn onto a knitting needle. Basically it is a slip knot....for lack of a better term. Once you have placed your needle thru the fabric (taken a bite out of the fabric) you will start "casting on" stitches. Pick up your thread with your left hand, creating a semi circle that will allow you to loop the thread over the needle. Twist your hand in-ward, counter clockwise to close the circle and drop the loop over the needle. The first batch will be only three stitches. For more visual references, check out Sharon B's Stitch Dictionary.....
