Still not satisfied with your cast on techniques? Have you wondered about using another cast on for that scarf? Do you know which cast on is best for what project? This class covers all these questions. We will focus on several types of cast on techniques that can be used in a variety of projects from sweaters to fingerless gloves. We will work on Long Tail, loose Long Tail, Cable, Double Twist, Provisional, and Norwegian.
Prerequisite: must have taken the begin to knit class or know the basic knitting skills. Also have a minimal Crochet ability. We will be using a crochet hook to creating a single chain for a provisional cast on.
Supplies: US 6-8 needles, F Hook, 20 yards of a smooth, colored worsted weight yarn and 40 yards of a smooth, light colored worsted weight yarn
Note; if you want to save your samples you will need about 20 yards per sample and additional needles for the other cast on techniques
I recommend buying the Cast On, Bind Off book by Lestlie Ann Bestor
