Knit The Crochet Provisional Cast On Tutorial 1 Part 17 of 18 Cast On Methods in Knitting
With this knitting tutorial you will learn how to knit the crochet provisional cast on. To do this you need a pair of knitting needles, a crochet hook, working yarn and some waste yarn. With the waste yarn and crochet hook make a foundation chain. Then pick up each stitch across the chain through the bottom loop and continue to knit. After you are done knitting in this direction and would like to continue work in other direction you need to transfer all the stitches that our foundation chain is holding into the second knitting needle. For this pick up each stitch through the loop along the edge, remove the waste yarn and continue knitting in the opposite direction. Thanks for watching!
