The twined cast-on sets you up for two-color ribbing and creates a contrasting edge in a third color.
- Tie three colors of yarn together in a slipknot and use the Old Norwegian cast-on to rotate between the two colors you will use for your ribbing. The yarn that goes over your thumb will be the color that creates the contrasting edge.
- Place your hands in the slingshot position with the third yarn hanging down.
- As you cast on each stitch with the Old Norwegian cast-on, drop the yarn from your index finger and replace it with the yarn that was hanging down.
