How tight should cast on stitches be?

When you are doing a long-tail cast-on and you snug up the stitches as you cast on, tug with your thumb, not your index finger. … If you’ve cast on with good tension, you’ll be able to slide the stitches around on the needle, but they should not be so loose that they slide by themselves.
