Thumb CAST-ON method

A great all rounder, use it to cast on stitches quickly and easily



Make a slip knot and place it on a needle, leaving a long tail. The tail length depends on the number of stitches you wish to cast on. Try a length about 3 times the width of the project. 2

Hold the tail in your left hand with your thumb sticking up. Make a circle anti-clockwise with your thumb. You should end up with a cross on the front of your thumb. 3

Push the needle tip along the outside of your thumb so it passes through the loop. Wrap the working yarn as if to knit. 4

Draw the yarn through the thumb loop and then between the arms of the cross. Slip your thumb out and pull to tighten the stitch. Repeat from Step 2.
