Double Needle Cast On

June 9th, 2009 · 5 Comments · Needle Knitting

This is a knitting cast on which is excellent for edges which need to stretch, such as sock cuffs, hat cuffs, sweater bottom hems, and so on. See my blog for more information –

The audio and video portions don’t quite match up properly, and I don’t know why. It appears that there is something missing, at the end of this video, but really, there isn’t much missing at all. The words, “…and now, you’re ready to knit.” are all that’s missing. The video portion is complete.

    Hi Rosemary and thank you. I will visit your listed blog.
    I have restarted the Master Level I (again) from TKGA and came across this cast on in The Principles of Knitting by Hiatt, but I could not find it in any of my other knitting books so I googled and your video was the first to come up. Hiatt claims this cast on is a WINNER! She gives written directions, BUT your video HELPED A LOT!
    Thank you …

    The advantage of …
    The advantage of this kind of cast on is that it is extremely flexible. It’s really stretchy… I am trying to learn it right now – I think this was a really great simple explanation & I can’t wait to get going!

    (I think that the poster has explained that the audio gets cut off at the end. All she would have said is ‘and now you’re ready to knit!’)
