Provisional Cast On is KILLING me! Please help
REALLY frustrated! How in the heck do I manage to unwind this mess to count my stitches once I cast on? I'm doing the provisional cast-on that Amy demos in her video.


ARGHHHH

I don't even try that one. I had a pattern that had me knit a few rows with scrap yarn and then join the real working yarn, do the pattern, and then later come back and just unravel the scrap yarn and pick up from there.

(hope that makes sense.)

Some people use a crochet cast on and then unzip the crochet chain afterwards and pick up the stitches.
