Cast-ons are the start of any project, but which one do you choose? Have you bound off only to find that the cast-on doesn't best fit the piece? Do you want to learn more than your go-to option? In this class, we'll cover the 4 basic cast-on types (Backward Loop, Knitted, Cable, and Long Ttail), their variations, pros, cons, and best uses, with an emphasis on exactly how the strand(s) of yarn interact to make the stitches. BONUS: we'll also cover how to pick up a dropped stitch in each one.
