If you’ve already mastered the long tail cast on, you’ll have no problems getting the hang of this technique — there are just a couple of extra steps to follow! The result of this cast-on variation gives you a bit more stretch than traditional methods, making it perfect for use in hats and top-down socks.

The Knitted Cast On

Perfect for beginners, this cast-on method is especially simple to master if you know the knit stitch. Not only is this one of the easiest cast ons to do, but it’s also great for areas where a sturdy cast on is necessary, e.g. the underarm of a sweater.

The Long Tail Cast On

This is probably the most common cast on you will see in knitting. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to use this cast on for just about any project.
