Four Essential Cast Ons (V) - March 8
This class is VIRTUAL via Zoom.
Four Essential Cast Ons with Bristol Ivy
Date(s): Friday March 8
Time: 6:00 - 8:00 pm Central Time
Instructor: Bristol Ivy
Ah, the humble cast on. The foundation for all things knitted. The building block upon which every project, no matter how big or small, is built. So, no pressure to pick which one to use, right? In this class, we’ll practice four of the most essential cast ons, and talk about when and why you might use each one, and what projects they best go with. Since this class is on a Friday evening expect a cocktail/mocktail recipe along with your Zoom link.
- 4 separate balls of light-colored, smooth worsted weight yarn, at least 10 yards in each. (This will let you keep each cast on live so you can continue knitting on it. If preferred, you can alternately work from one ball of yarn and break it between trying each cast on.)
- US 8 circular needles, 32-60” in length. (This length will let you slide each cast on onto the circular so that you can keep knitting them later if you choose.)
- Crochet hook of any size An additional waste yarn, light-colored smooth worsted weight, approximately 5 yards
Prerequisites: Be comfortable knitting, purling and making a slipknot
