It’s worse with knitting cause one row is technically two so you gotta do your times tables

You should try, at first it’ll take a lot of patience but soon it becomes second nature and you can knit without looking at the needles

Really I’ve tried before but I gave up I think I need to use a not so slippery yarn and a wooden needle. Any tips for me lol

In addition to that try casting with your hands instead of with the needles, I found this to be easier when transitioning from crocheting to knitting.

Oh ok yeah sounds good I use my crochet hook for every thing crochet so it makes it harder to get used too ig

Also I know how in the tutorial videos it says to hold the yarn in your right hand, ignore them. Just hold the yarn the way you would if you were crocheting and it’ll come easier.

Ahhh thanks!

I found that out on accident when I had picked up the needles and wrapped the yarn around my finger like I was crocheting. You can also use the same slip knot from crotchet and I’d recommend the long tail casting on method. It’s good for those that don’t have a lot of experience with needles and are just transitioning from crocheting.
