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.
1
Hold your knitting needle parallel to your crochet hook.
2
Be sure to work with the yarn coming from the ball and not the tail.
3
Hold your working yarn behind the knitting needle.
4
Bring your hook in front of your knitting needle.
5
Wrap the yarn over and in front of your hook.
6
Grab the yarn with your hook and pull through the loop on your hook.
7
Move the yarn behind the knitting needle.
8
Repeat: hook in front, pull yarn through, move yarn behind.
9
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.
10
For regular cast on: make one fewer stitches, move the loop from your hook to the knitting needle.
11
Crocheted cast on makes a beautiful, braided edge.
The Winding Roads Double Brim pattern uses a provisional cast on!
