Class Details:
This class is 4 of 6 in a series called Casting On and Binding Off for Modern Edges. You do not need to take all six! But as a whole they will give you a great set of skills. The crochet chain cast on method is worked with a crochet hook and can be used as a decorative cast-on that forms a tidy braided edge or as a provisional cast-on. A provisional cast-on keeps cast-on stitches “live” so they can be knit later. You can add a border or decide to make something longer. With multiple strands held together, this cast on creates a bold edging that prevents your edge from curling. Technique Requirements: knit/purl; cast on/bind off; have knit a few accessories; basic finishing techniques; beginner crochet
