How To Work A Crochet Cast On
You'll need the knitting needle and yarn the pattern calls for and a crochet hook the same size as your knitting needle.
Make a slip knot, put it on your crochet hook and gently tighten.
Hold your knitting needle parallel to your crochet hook.
Be sure to work with the yarn coming from the ball and not the tail.
Hold your working yarn behind the knitting needle.
Bring your hook in front of your knitting needle.
Wrap the yarn over and in front of your hook.
Grab the yarn with your hook and pull through the loop on your hook.
Move the yarn behind the knitting needle.
Repeat: hook in front, pull yarn through, move yarn behind.
Tip- don't pull the yarn too tight or it will be hard to knit the stitches.
Provisional Cast On: repeat until you have the same number of stitches that are called for in the pattern. Cut the yarn and pull through.
For regular cast on: make one fewer stitches, move the loop from your hook to the knitting needle.
Crocheted cast on makes a beautiful, braided edge.
The Winding Roads Double Brim pattern uses a provisional cast on!
