How do you knit first row on circular needles?
Cast on one stitch more than your desired number of stitches and arrange your needles in preparation to work in the round. Move the last cast-on stitch (the extra stitch) to the left-hand needle. Knit together the first two stitches on the left-hand needle (the first cast-on stitch and the extra stitch).
What does set up round in knitting mean?
Set up round: [k9 (10, 11, 12, 13, 14), k2tog, PM] around. This means you are knitting 9 (10, 11, 12, 13, 14) stitches then knitting 2 stitches together, then placing a marker. Tip: these markers should be a different colour from the beginning of round marker to avoid confusion.
