Knitting Quick Tip: Cast on Length

Here is a quick tip. When casting on a large number of stitches it can be difficult to know how much yarn will be needed. To make a good estimate, wrap the yarn around the needle to be used as many times as stitches need. For example, if you need to cast on 130 stitches, wrap the yarn around the needle 130 times. Then give yourself an additional inch or two.
