    I’m a new knitter who has been enjoying all your video tutorials tremendously! Thank you for presenting the stitches in such a professional manner.

    I have a question/observation about this video. In the video the instructions for casting on state ‘cast on in multiples of three, plus two’ the written instructions say to cast on in multiples of two… which one is correct?
