Casting on knitting

To really get anywhere in knitting, you need to be able to get started. You may well have learnt the knit and purl stitches using some knitting that a kind person had already cast-on for you, otherwise I’m afraid this is where you have to start. 
There are a huge number of different methods for casting on - bewildering for the beginner but very useful for a more experienced knitter as they all have slightly different qualities. There are much better tutorials out there on the internet, but I thought I’d round up the methods I use most often.
