CLUELESS ABOUT CAST ONS
Q I’m knitting a jumper and the pattern is asking me to cast on some stitches at the end of a row. How do you do this correctly? Previously I’ve just been winging it, but I’m sure I’m not doing it the right way. Can you help? Michelle Clarke, Northampton Casting on at the end of your work is a very useful technique for shaping your knitting, for example, under the arms on a top-down jumper. The simplest way to do this is with a cable cast on. If you find you are getting a hole or gap at the start of the newly cast-on section, try casting on an extra stitch and knitting them both together to pull the fabric of your knitting tight enough to hide your unwanted hole.
Casting on stitches at the end of a row is a useful skill to learn for shaping many knit designs. Try it with this great cardi is from issue 146
