Demonstration of a new stretchy cast-on which I have invented (?) and which is especially suitable for double and single ribbing, great for top down socks, glove and hat cuffs and any item needing a very stretchy cast-on. This is a knitted -on type cast-on using 2 needles to form stitches on the left needle and is demonstrated in the ‘english style’ of knitting. For knitting in the round it is easiest to cast the stitches onto a straight needle and then transfer then onto a set of double pointed needles. Please let me know how you get on with this and if you have seen a similar type of cast-on anywhere else.
