Video: Channel Island Cast-On

Characteristics: decorative, good for casting on sweaters, stretchy
Difficulty: Intermediate

The Channel Island cast-on is decorative cast-on for stockinette or ribbing.

It creates a small knot every other stitch and, because it is created with a double strand of yarn, the edge is very sturdy and won't get stretched-out. It is traditionally used to cast on for gansey sweaters.
