Article: Classic and Cable Cast Ons

“This issue’s Skill Booster continues our conversation about cast ons. We’re going to discuss two more basic cast ons, the “long tail” and cable cast ons. The first, while a bit difficult to master, produces a nice elastic edge and is a good general purpose cast on. The second is similar to the knitted-on cast on we discussed last issue, but has a different appearance. Like the knitted-on cast on it can be used to add stitches at the beginning of a row.”
