How to Knit the Crochet Cast On

music in video is from demo 2008 by (Latchxe9 Swing) / CC BY-NC-SA 2.0

This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the crochet cast on. This technique uses a crochet hook to place stitches on your knitting needle when starting a project. It can be used to create a provisional cast on or on it’s own. The resulting edge will mirror most regular bind off edges.

Skill: Easy

Instructions:

Step 1: Create a slip knot on your crochet hook.

Step 2: Hold your main knitting needle parallel to your crochet hook.

Step 3: Take the working yarn and wrap it behind the knitting needle, around, and over the crochet hook.

Step 4: Pull the working yarn through the stitch on your crochet hook.

Repeat steps 3 – 4 until you have cast on the number of stitches required by your pattern.

After a few repeats your pattern should look like this:
