The Turkish Cast-On is a double-sided cast-on that is even and sturdy. It's easy because all it entails is just wrapping the yarn around both of your needle tips held together.
However, what it gains in easiness at the cast-on stage causes more difficulty when it's time to knit into the cast-on. You'll need to be proficient in Magic Loop in order to make this cast-on work without dropping stitches.
Extra Materials Needed: Stitch marker
1. Hold your working and tail yarns carefully so that no stitches disappear off the needles.
2. To knit into the cast-on, pull the bottom needle out to start knitting in the round using Magic Loop.
3. After you've knit the first round, place a marker at the beginning of the round.
