crochet cast-on ?
i was forced to learn the crochet CO as a pattern called for it explicitly. to my delight, it's my new favorite CO. does anyone know what projects it would NOT be appropriate for? i know it matches the bind-off, so are there times that is just not right?

thanks!

I'd use it for scarves and such when you want the ends to match, or if you want to add an edging later. I don't think I'd bother for, say, the ribbing on the bottom of a sweater. I also don't think bind off is as stretchy as cast on, so that might be a consideration.

I think its the easiest provisional cast on, though, too.

i most frequently use long-tail, occasionally the e-wrap, but i just LOVE this crochet one now! i love how even it is and how the first row looks. i've used it on another project already, i love it that much. ;-)

thanks for your help!
