Cast-off Stitches

Once you have knitted the desired number of rows for your knitting project, you have to cast-off your stitches. If you don’t do this and just remove the needle, your knitting project will frog completely.

Step 1: Knit the first two stitches. If you don’t know how to do that, check the tutorial “The Knit Stitch“.

Step 4: Just drop the back loop after you have pulled it in front of the front loop. You now only have one stitch on your right knitting needle. Repeat this until you have reached the end of the row.
