Emily Ocker Cast On

The Emily Ocker Cast On

About this technique

The Emily Ocker Cast On is a great way to start your knitting from the center. This can be useful when doing shawls and blankets, or hats and even toe-up socks! By starting your work in the round with a unique loop, you can begin your project from the middle and work out. One of the best things about this technique is how you pull your work together with the slip knot you create during the cast on. It’s like magic!

Technique Instructions

  • Step 1: Take your yarn and make a around your finger.
  • Step 2: Take a crochet hook and insert it under the loop on your finger and grab the yarn connected to the ball with the hook.
  • Step 3: Pull the yarn through the loop on your finger.
  • Step 4: Grab the yarn connected to the ball again with the hook.
  • Step 5: Pull the yarn through the loop on your crochet hook. This will create one stitch

Repeat steps 2-5 until you have cast on the number of stitches required by your pattern.

    First of all – I love your show! So far, I've known how to do everything you're showing, but it's nice to see each technique broken down step-by-step. Your site is a great place for beginners who learn better visually! That said, THANK YOU! For this video. I'm sure there are other video tutorials for doing this cast on, but honestly, it hadn't clicked until watching your video. :)Thanks a lot for the hard work. Keep it up! 😀
