Continue in the established manner until you have as many loops on the needle as you need stitches for your project. Remember that the slip knot loop counts as a stitch.

The long-tail cast on method is easy and versatile, and, better yet, the cast on makes a row of bumps that count as a row of knitting. If you're working the stockinette stitch, you can start with a purl row instead of a knit row when you cast on with this method.
