I am stuck at the point where I finish the cable cast on to start row 1. The last stitch of the cast on doesn’t have the working yarn at the first peg to start the row 1 like I see on the video. I have tried to knit the last peg of the cast on =(1st peg of row 1) but doesn’t look right. What do I have to do to bring the working yarn from the cable cast on you show on the video to the first peg for starting row 1 ?
