Tips for Knitting: Habitation Throw by Helen Stewart

Habitation Throw by Helen Stewart
Habitation Throw by Helen Stewart

You could be using leftover yarn to knit this gorgeous and easy lace throw today. Your only possible hang-up? A very specific cast-on.

The way to start this throw, and almost any lace shawl, is with the Garter-Tab cast-on. It starts the lace completely invisibly and gets your stitches set up correctly to knit the rest of the shawl.

Garter Tab Cast On with title 6521

A super-clear demo of how to do this cast-on is available in the Cast-Ons reference library at Knitting Superstar University.

This week, I’m making the video free to KnitFreedom readers so you can start any lace shawl perfectly and with confidence.

It’s simple to learn this cast on. Just follow these 3 steps:

  1. Grab a crochet hook, 2 colors of scrap yarn, and a circular needle.
  2. Watch this week’s free Garter Tab Cast-On video
  3. Cast on for the Habitation Throw, the Show Your Colors Shawl (free), or any lace shawl you like on Ravelry.

Enjoy!

P.S. You will learn two important knitting skills in today’s video: how to do a provisional cast-on AND how to pick up and knit. Don’t miss the chance to increase your knitting confidence by adding these important skills! Click here to learn the Garter Tab Cast-On free.
