Different techniques for Casting On - Part One

Posted on


Hi everyone,

There are so may different techniques for casting on and often it is down to the knitter to choose which method to use for their project. We all tend to have a favourite technique that we use most often but in the Casting On Part One guide  we explore a few of the methods you might like to try.

The guide includes instructions for:

  • Cable Cast On
  • Thumb Cast On
  • Long Tail Cast On
  • Knitted Cast On
  • Picot Cast On
  • Picot Folded Edge Cast On
  • I-Cord Cast On

We hope you find the guide useful. There are so may techniques and ways to achieve the desired result, but we think the most important thing is to enjoy the process!

Bye for now!
