When it's time to get some stitches on your needles, make sure you have the long tail cast-on on speed dial. This versatile cast-on works great for lots of projects, and has a clean, smooth edge — you're essentially casting on AND knitting the first row as you go! If you only learn one cast-on, make it this one.

You finally finished knitting those cozy socks, only to find out the cuff is so snug it might be cutting off your circulation. The curse of the too-tight cast-on strikes again. (Ugh!) This easy-to-make knitting mistake is particularly problematic for garments like socks, as well as sweater cuffs, headbands, hats, and more.
