How To Do The Knitted Cast-On
The knitted cast-on is a cast-on to use in an emergency.
It requires just one strand of yarn, so it's perfect for adding stitches mid-project.
The same goes for when you run out of tail doing the long-tail cast-on. It's great for adding more than 2 or 3 stitches to the width of your project in any given row.
To do the knitted cast-on, you simply knit a stitch and then pass it back to your left-hand needle.
It's kind of like the cable cast-on, where you insert your needle between the first and second stitches to form the stitch, but I think the knitted cast-on is much easier.
Plus, if you twist the stitch as you place it on the left-hand needle, you are already set up to cast on the next stitch.
