Learn three to four interesting and elastic cast-ons and their matching bind-offs. Armed with these techniques, you can get the same look at the cuff and toe of socks knitted from the toe up or top down, the hem and neck edges of sweaters, and the two ends of scarves.
ADVANCED-BEGINNER KNITTING SKILLS REQUIRED; MUST BE COMFORTABLE KNITTING IN ROUNDS WITH DOUBLE-POINTED NEEDLES (OR A SUITABLE SUBSTITUTE).
Materials: Tightly twisted sport-, DK, or worsted-weight wool yarn (you’ll use just part of a ball); a set of double-pointed needles in a size appropriate for your yarn (two circulars or the “magic loop” method can be substituted); tapestry needle.
