Video: BLCO – Backwards Loop Cast-On



This is a beginner cast on that you can teach to anyone just starting to knit, including children. You can also use this cast-on when you have accidentally run out of tail at the end of your Long-Tail Cast-On or when you are required to cast-on at a midpoint in your knitting (like on a buttonhole). The edge is not very strong, so this cast-on should be used sparingly.

Instructions

Start by putting a slipknot on your needle.

  1. Take the working yarn and make a twist.
  2. Place the loop on the needle.
  3. Pull yarn until the stitch is almost snug.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 until you have as many stitches as you need.
