What you do is load the yarn into the carriage and draw it accross the bed of chosen needles once.
After that hang on the cast on comb on these loops that are formed and put on some weights, and then start knitting. Push the carriage back & forth forming stitches. It will then form stitches and when removed from machine won't run. Read you manual, it explains all this.

Thanks for asking.

Knitting: if I'm slipping the first stitch of each row purl wise, with the yarn in front, should I also slip the first stitch when I bind off?

If you are binding off on a purl row (or at least stitch 2 in the row is a purl), then yes, you should slip the first stitch of the bind off row.
If, however, the bind off row is a knit row (or a least the second stitch in the row is a knit) I would knit the first stitch.
A lot depends on the pattern being worked. Personally, I would try it both ways and see which way looks best with the pattern.

What do yon and yfrn mean in a knitting pattern?

yon is usually Yarn On (or over) Needle. This is a yarn over between a purl and a knit stitch. (After the purl stitch, keep the working yarn in front of the needle. Then place the right needle into the next stitch so that the right needle is behind the left needle in the stitch. Wind the yarn around the needle and pull the loop through.)

yfrn is a Yarn foward and round the needle. This is a similar yarn over to the yon but is a little larger. The difference is that the yarn over is done after a knit stitch and before a purl stitch. After the knit stitch, bring the yarn in front of the needle. Wrap the yarn anti-clockwise around the right needle so that the yarn is again at the front of the work. Place the right needle in the front of the next stitch on the left needle. Then do a normal purl stitch.

You can see some videos and still photos here: .

I hope this helps.

How do I add knit band to pajama pant on McCalls pattern 7975. I have lost the directions.

Usually the cuff ribbing is cut double the required length plus doubled seam allowances (ie 3" x 2 = 6; add two 5/8" for seams = 1.25"'; equals 7.25" long). It is doubled so when it is folded in half and stitched to the leg, there will be no seams showing outside). The width of the ribbing is probably an inch or so shorter than the leg bottom--it should be large enough for the foot to fit through but tight enough that it hugs (not squeezes) the leg.

Sew the cuff together lengthwise to make a circle. Fold it in half with the stitched seam inside. Then fold the circle widthwise with the seamline at one end. Mark the halfway point opposite the seamline. Then fold in half again with the seamline and the first pin matching together. Mark the other two ends. You've divided it into equal fourths. Repeat the same procedure marking the pajama leg in fourths. Then match the seamline of the ribbing to the seamline of the leg (right sides together). Match the other three marks on the cuff to the three marks on the pajama leg bottom. You'll have the stretch the ribbing because it should be a bit smaller in circumference than the leg bottom. Stretch the ribbing to match the leg bottom and stitch the ribbing and leg bottoms together. Turn right side out.

I need help with a cardigan. It is the Imperial Yarn Arrowhead Cardigan. It is worked in the round with two colors and has steeks. I have just finished the armholes and have binded off the armhole steeks...

I think that's a question for the folks at Knitting Paradise. They have more knowledge than I could have ever imagined and have always answered my knitting questions.
