Video: Contrasting-Color Cast-On with Corded or Braided Edge

Difficulty: Beginner-Intermediate

The easiest way to create a contrasting-color edge is to tie two colors of yarn together in a slipknot and use them to do any kind of long-tail cast-on.

The yarn that goes over your thumb will be the color that creates the contrasting edge.
