Knit For Crocheters Series Day 3: The Long Tail Cast On

This was the number one reason it took me so long to learn to knit. Reading a book might help you with the motions of creating a cast on, but it doesn’t tell you all the problems you might encounter and how to overcome them to make a cast on you can actually work into.

But, have no fear, that is what I’m here for. I walk you through one of the most popular knit cast ons — the long tail cast on. I give you tips to make sure your cast on is something you can actually work into when it’s time to work your first row.

Watch the video below to get started.
