To cast on for two-at-a-time top-down socks, mittens, or sweater sleeves, you need two tubes that are open at the end. This cast-on shows you how to set up your stitches perfectly for two-at-a-time knitting.

Liat's Limitless Cast-On For Two-at-a-Time Anything

Characteristics: [email protected], Magic Loop, top-down, two-at-a-time
Difficulty: Advanced

Liat's Limitless Cast-On for Two-at-a-Time Anything is a top-down cast-on I invented for two-at-a-time knitting in the round on Magic Loop.

It's the easiest way to get started knitting two tubes that are open on the end, like top-down socks.


1. You can use any type of long-tail cast-on with this technique, and I encourage you to experiment.

2. Don't tighten the first stitch of each tube too tight - you'll regret it when it comes time to put the stitches back on your needle tips.

3. You can learn more about two-at-a-time knitting in my course on two-at-a-time top-down socks.

More Information

You'll need a long circular needle (47 inches [120 cm]) and two balls of yarn.

Tip: Knitting into this cast-on will be much easier if you are proficient in Magic Loop knitting.

For two-at-a-time toe-up socks, try Judy's Magic Cast-On for two-at-a-time.
