Cast-On

  • The Twisted German Cast-On is my favorite method of casting on. Here are two YouTube videos that show you how how in 2 different ways, but with the same results. The first video gives you more of a conceptual understanding, but I personally I cast-on like KnitWitch’s method.

  2. KnitWitch’s Twisted German
