About This Class

In this class, learn 11 different ways to cast-on for your knitting project.  Each cast-on has a use.  Learn which cast-ons are more stretchy, which provide more structure, and which ones have specialized uses.  Take your knitting to the next level by casting on and knitting small squares to test your new skills. There are no hard and fast rules while knitting.  So, I will not tell you to always use a certain cast-on for a certain project.  Many cast-ons are suitable for every project.
