tubular cast on
I have just discovered the tubular cast on. Has anyone else used this method before? If so, what do you think?

hi maggie - i heard about it recently as well (also under the heading of casting on in kitchener rib) but can't seem to find instructions that i can understand properly. i really want to try it since i hear it looks great and is awesome for socks as it's nice and stretchy. do you have a good set of instructions that you used?

It is in the Knitter's Book of Finishing Techniques by Nancie M. Wiseman. I will try to explain but you really need the pictures to understand (or at least I did).

Using a cotton yarn that is a different color than the yarn you plan on using, cast on half of the number of stitches plus one using the chained cast on method.

With the project yarn, knit one row, purl one row, and knit one row.

Then... **purl first stitch, insert the right needle in the bottom purl stitch of the project yarn (will be at the bottom surrounded by the cotton yarn) from the top to the bottom of the purl stitch.

Put the stitch on the left needle from front to back and then knit the stitch.

Repeat from **
