Just learned the "figure 8" cast-on - sooo cool
I just learned the figure 8 cast on. So very slick.

After a little frustration, some colorful words and a few tries, I'm an instant fan.

I'm making my first pair of socks.

Has anyone tried using the "figure 8" cast on to make a hat? I've gotta try it.

What exactly is meant by that, brendajos?

You seem to have strong feelings on this issue.

Oh. Yea, it's a little tricky, but once you get it, it's worth all the frustration.

Here's the diagram of how you start. It's from the free toe-up sock pattern on this site.
