How to Knit - Brief Start to Finish Sample

I see a lot of questions from new knitters about how to start knitting.  Even though they may have watched videos about casting on, knit/purl stitches, and binding off they are still unsure of exactly how to put it all together.

The below video is a very brief video showing casting on, knitting a few rows with knit and purl stitches, and then binding off.   This video is not meant to teach specific techniques (see the "Free Knitting Videos" Tab at the top for more detailed, slower videos), rather it is just meant to show what to do once you are ready to begin working on your pattern.

This video is not meant to instruct on how to read a knitting pattern, although I have a sample pattern in the video.

This video is basically a "I have yarn, needles, and a pattern.  Now what?" demo.  It is meant solely to demonstrate the process of casting on, knitting, and then binding off.
