View Full Version : Double Cast On question

12-28-2012, 12:48 PM
Help me please! I am a relatively new knitter. I am starting a project that calls for 80 "double cast on" stitches. Since they are double, do I only need to cast on 40? Help! I need to start this project today :)

Hi and welcome to KH!
Long tail cast on is also called double cast on (http://www.knittinghelp.com/video/play/long-tail-cast-on). In that case, if the pattern says cast on 80stitches, then you'll need to cast on 80sts.
You might have a pattern for double knitting which makes a two-sided project. Can you link to the pattern or give us a pattern name?
