Wimpy cast on
I've never heard of this !
Directions for the edging on the "Truly Tasha's Shawl" (available on the Wooly West web site) call for a backward loop or Wimpy cast on. Can anyone explain that to me?
Thanks for any info

That's what my grandmother taught me when I was 5 years old! (Only she didn't have a particular name for it)
