Knit­ting knack

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - D-I-Y TIPS -

When knit­ting, in­stead of try­ing to es­ti­mate how much yarn you’ll need for a long-tail cast-on, use a sec­ond ball or work from both ends of one ball: us­ing both strands, make a slip-knot (does not count as a stitch), cast-on re­quired stitches, then cut one strand, leav­ing a tail to weave in. Knit across row with re­main­ing strand; drop off slip-knot.
