How To: Do a knitted cast on

Do a knitted cast on

A knitted cast on stitch is one of multiple methods for casting on your stitches, and is good for starting a scarf, or the bottom of a sweater. With this tutorial, learn how to do the cast on stitch. Beginning with a loose slip knot, knit a stitch, making sure to replace the original stitch on your left hand needle. This will provide the basis for all the subsequent stitches, making up the amount of necessary stitches you will need to cast off. Keep in mind this is not an elastic stitch, so avoid using this method when knitting gloves or socks.
