There are a few times you will encounter in a pattern that you will need to cast on in the middle of your work. This means you’ll be adding stitches after your beginning cast on. This technique has a few applications, including making buttonholes. Knitting on the cast on, like we do in this tutorial, makes for a stronger edge than a backwards loop cast on.
Our mission is to empower knitters to be fearless with their knitting through great education, simple projects, and an amazing community.
