Cast-on Trickery

Cast-on Trickery

It’s a shame that many knitters aren’t familiar with provisional and tubular cast-ons. They permit all sorts of trickery: no-sew hems, scarves with identical ends, seamless underarms in top-down sweaters, ribbing that appears to flow from one side of the fabric to the other, and much more. Try a few provisional cast-ons, and find your new favorite. Discover options for creating the perfect tubular cast-on.
