Just another cast on method (Knit cast on)

Knitting cast on method
Final result with a few rows of garter stitch and then stockinette stitch

How do you call this method ? I love casting on with this method, it’s a bit slow but not difficult. (Most people on ravelry call it knit cast on, opposed to cable cast on where the loop is picked between stitches… I’ll makes pictures of the cable cast on too then.)

1/ Start with a slipknot
knitting cast on
2/ Stick your right needle in the knot, yarn over the needle as if knitting garter stitch

3/ you obtain a loop

4/ extend the loop toward the left needle

5/ stick the left needle through the loop

6/ here is your new stitch
knitting cast on
7/ stick your right needle in the new stitch

8/ as if knitting

9/ get a new loop

10/ Put that new loop on the left needle

11/ repeat the process untill you reach the number of stitches you need.

Sorry wordpress won’t let display the images nicely, hope it’s clear enough.



  1. That’s a cable cast on. It’s a stretchy cast on. I like it too. I’ve recently tried the alternate cable cast on for 1×1 ribbing. Stretchy but it produces a bulkier edge. Oh there are so many cast ons…
