Cast-Ons

Emily Ocker’s Circular Cast-On, made popular by Elizabeth Zimmerman, is the easiest circular center-start cast on. It uses a crochet hook to create the number of cast-on stitches needed, and the stitches are then slipped onto a long circular needle or double-points.

Difficulty: Beginner-Intermediate

Emily Ocker's Circular Cast-On, made popular by Elizabeth Zimmerman, is the easiest circular center-start cast on.

It uses a crochet hook to create the number of cast-on stitches needed, and the stitches are then slipped onto a long circular needle or double-points.

When you pull the tail tight, the cast-on zips up into a circle. A little hole is still visible - if you don't like the hole, try the Invisible Circular Cast-On.


Extra Materials Needed: Crochet hook in same size called for on yarn label
