Cast-On Tutorials

Our FREE Cast-On Tutorials show you the ins and outs of a wide range of methods for casting on.

The Cast On (CO) is the basis for all knitting projects.

Get the cast-on wrong and your knitting project will never look right. So, it is essential that you use the right cast-on technique for your knitting projects.

For instance, when you are knitting a shawl or a sweater, you are better off using a reasonably firm cast-on method.

On the other hand, if you are knitting a hat or a pair of socks from the top down, you will probably want to use a cast-on technique that is nice and stretchy.

Furthermore, casting on using a more decorative technique can give you a special edge for more dressy garments.

So, check out our Cast-on Tutorials and find the method that is right for your knitting project.
