I have a knitting question. I need directions for Open-edge cast on.You cast on with a waste thread.?

April 9th, 2010 · No Comments · Knitting How To Cast On

I was given a scarf kit as a gift. I am not a new knitter but this a new technique to me. It is called Open edge cast on , "Invisible Cast on, Open Cast On and Stranded Cast On". There is a waste ribbon that floats under the needle. It looks like that at some point I will go back and pick these stitches to continue on with the work. The knitting is easy but I cann’t get started. I hope someone can explain it better than the pattern.

A provisional cast on can be done on waste yarn or over the cable of a circular needle. As you said, you’ll go back and knit those stitches later.

This site has a video of a provisional cast on. Scroll down to the section called,
"Invisible (Provisional) Cast-On
aka Looped Cast-On"

I also like this technique that uses a crochet hook.
