Knitting How to: Cable Cast On

June 24, 2011

Last month I showed you how to add some snazzy detail to your bind offs with the Picot Bind Off but I received some questions on the cast on technique used in the Picot Bind off: the Cable Cast On. This video will demonstrate for you how to cast on with the Cable Cast On and will help you to complete your Picot Bind Off with ease.  The Cable Cast On is a great knitting technique to have in reserve as it is a flexible cast one well named for use with cable designs and when a flexible cast on edge is needed (think tops of socks, leg warmers, cowls, etc). The Cable Cast On is also great because you do not need to estimate your yarn as with the Long Tail Cast On and is well suited for tight knitters.
