Every knitter has a favorite cast-on. You may never need to know another, but what if you want to? Amy covers the benefits and features of long-tail (and some variations), plus provisional and knitted-on cast-ons. Amy will even show you how to make the repair if you drop a cast-on stitch while working the first row! She’ll also demonstrate Elizabeth Zimmermann’s sewn bind-off and the I-cord bind-off.
Technique Requirements: Knit/purl
Supplies for Class:
One ball of yarn; needles (straight or circular) in a size appropriate for your yarn; crochet hook (D, E, or F). You may also want some string tags to label your swatches so you know which cast-on was used for each.
