The Backwards Loop Cast-On is the easiest of them all.
It's great for teaching to children and beginning knitters. However, it's not very sturdy or stretchy, and it's also difficult to knit into.
The stitches act like a Chinese finger trap and tighten as you knit each one – not very desirable.
Learn this cast-on so you can teach it to your kids and your beginning-knitter friends, then learn a better short-tail cast-on as soon as possible.
