How to Cast On Knitting

Most of our knit projects on the blog begin with the Long Tail Cast On also known as the Double Cast On. It’s one of the most versatile, popular, and most recognizable cast ons. It provides a firm edge with just enough elasticity for a variety of projects and is excellent for beginners.

How to knit the Seersucker Stitch

The Seersucker stitch combination creates a beautiful diamond texture in the fabric of your work.  It’s a simple stitch combination and all you really need is to know how to cast on, how to knit and how to purl.  If you can do that, and love texture then, this is the stitch for you.
