Step 1: Materials
Worsted Weight Yarn
place marker or small washer
crochet hook or large-eyed embroidery needle
embellishments if desired
Step 2: Cast On!
Add a marker at start of knit--this way you can tell where a row starts and ends.
KnittingHelp.com has some great videos to get you started with your knitting adventures.
Step 3: Knit
Cast off. (Told you this is quick!) Leave another three inch tail.
