Video: Knitted Cast-On

Difficulty: Easy

The Knitted Cast-On is a very easy short-tail cast-on based on the knit stitch. It is moderately stretchy and only semi-durable- it tends to get stretched-out with use.

Avoid using this cast-on on high-wear items like kids' hat brims or mitten cuffs.


1. Knit into stitch on the left-hand needle and then place the new stitch knitwise onto the left-hand needle.
2. Repeat for as many stitches needed to cast on.


1. If you are using the knitted cast-on to add stitches in the middle of a project, you won't need to turn your work after you've cast on- just start knitting the cast-on stitches.

2. Knit the cast-on stitches through the back loops to ensure a nice solid edge.
