Summer Skills Series - Provisional Cast On
The Summer Skill Series is designed to provide you with practical and interesting techniques to improve your knitting skill set - 2021 is the year of cast ons! These bite-sized classes focus on improving little details which make huge impacts on the quality and range of your knitting.
Week 4: Provisional Cast On
Patterns knit from the top down as well as multiple different hem types utilize a provisional cast on. All provisional cast ons use waste yarn to create a row of stitches that are later unraveled and the now live stitches are picked up. This technique is increasingly popular in patterns today.
