“Casting on creates the foundation stitches of our knitting. Most knitters cast on in the same way they were taught when they learned to knit. But there is a whole world of other cast ons out there to explore. Becoming familiar with them and their characteristics enables the knitter to make appropriate choices when a pattern itself gives little or no guidance.”
