Before you can start any knitting project you have to get the wool on the needles. This is called ‘casting on’ and allows you to place your first row of stitches on the needle. There are loads of different ways to cast on, and we like the cable cast on method shown here, which creates a really neat edge. We use the cable cast on method in all our kits. Look at our step by step photo instructions, or watch the video below for instructions on how to cast on.
