Top knit tips

For a cable cast on, Start by placing a slip knot on the left-hand needle leaving just a short tail. Knit on one stitch leaving two stitches now on the left-hand needle. Now insert the needle between the two stitches, wrap yarn around and bring through, transferring the newly created stitch onto the left-hand needle.
