Crochet Cast On Method

I know I’ve shared my cast on method with you in the past, but it’s been a few years now, and I’m getting better at making these videos, hehe.  So I filmed and shared it on my FB page again this week.  I was super pleasantly surprised by the results!  At the current moment, the video has been viewed over 340k times, and shared over 8100 times….Wow!  Apparently many of the crocheters trying to master knitting have had a real issue with the cast on.  I’m thrilled that I can be of help!

If you didn’t catch the video on FB, I’m sharing it here as well.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

  2. Does the size of the crochet hook need to match the size of the knitting needle as closely as possible?

  8. It would be even better if you placed your yarn in front of the last stitch before you placed it on the needle. This way, you’re all ready for knitting! This is NOT my idea, but Liat Gat’s from KnitFreedom.

  12. As you said, casting on was so frustrating that I never picked up knitting, though I’ve wanted to. (I learned to knit as a teen–one lesson–but didn’t have anyone to help me after that) I learned to crochet from my roommate freshman year in college and have continued it off and on for right at 40 years. Now it will be easy to add knitting!

  13. I’ve always done a long tail cast on, and never have enough stitches at the end of my tail. Then I’d pull them off and do it over. This is simple, easy to teach and quick!
