The Pesky Circular Cast-On - Solved

Some patterns use a circular cast-on to have a lovely starburst center that is then worked outward. The cast-on directions that I've seen/read have been confusing at best. This video has taken the mystery out of it! Unlike many tech vids, this one uses good background, good yarn color, and good direction. (A rooster makes his point, too, near the end.)



For those of us who are not highly skilled knitters this technique can open up pattern options that we hadn't considered. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Good video, Laura!

I'm teaching a class on my Pi Shawl soon and, of course, the circular cast on is on the agenda!

Thanks, Laura! That does look easier than the way I did it when beginning my Tibetan Clouds Beaded Stole. Or maybe it was on Sophie. They both were some kind of awkward.
