Video: Twined Cast-On for Two-Color Ribbing with Contrasting Edge

Difficulty: Advanced

The twined cast-on sets you up for two-color ribbing and creates a contrasting edge in a third color.


  1. 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.
  2. Place your hands in the slingshot position with the third yarn hanging down.
  3. 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.
