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

  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…
