There are a few times you will encounter in a pattern that you will need to cast on in the middle of your work. This means you’ll be adding stitches after your beginning cast on. This technique has a few applications, including making buttonholes. Knitting on the cast on, like we do in this tutorial, makes for a stronger edge than a backwards loop cast on.
- Step 1: Insert your needle into the stitch, as if yo knit.
- Step 2: Draw loop through stitch.
- Step 3: Place on main needle.
