You will start out by tying a simple knot on one of the needles. Make sure it is tight and sturdy so it does not slip off while you are knitting. You can also tie the string like you are tying a shoe, either way works use the knot that you are most comfortable with.
Step 3: Cast On
Step 1: Place your finger directly underneath the string and get ready to twist
Step 2 : Twist your fingers clockwise so that you create a loop in the string
Step 3: Once you have the loop made place the needle inside the loop, then remove your fingers from the loop and pull the extra string to make the loop tighter.
Step 4: Once you tighten the loop it should look like this.
Step 5: Now repeat this process until you achieve your desired width of the scarf, for this particular pattern I used 20 loops wich should look like this when you are done.
