The Cable Cast-On and the Old Norwegian Cast-On (aka German Twisted Cast-On) are my two favourite stretchy cast ons for flexible knitted edges. This knitting tutorial demonstrates how to work these two stretchy COs in depth. The video covers:
- How to work each cast-on
- Comparing how the edges look when with both flat knitting, and knitting in the round
- How much yarn length is needed to work each cast-on
- A comparison of the two techniques, suggesting the best uses in different knitted items and stitch patterns
