Pin Hole cast on method
I have come across a pattern that uses a "pin hole method" to cast on.
Has anyone heard of this? I've searched but can't find it mentioned anywhere.
Can anyone help, please.

The only reference I found in Google was in a preview for a book called "Knitting in the Round". Here is the link. You should be on a pattern when you open the link, just go down a bit to where it says Special Abbreviations.

In one of those little blurbs, I read that it is described in the "Knitter's Handbook", and in there it's with a crochet hook.

Thanks, Knitting in the Round is the book I got the pattern from but it doesn't say how todo it. I guess I'll have to get the knitters handbook.
I appreciate your help.

If you go to the link I provided (or to the pattern for the Intertwined Hexagon Flowers), it tells you how to do it. I think it's page 28, in the category "Comfy Wraparounds". It tells you, as I mentioned, under the heading "Special Abbreviations" of the pattern.

Well, what do ya know! I found the instructions for the cast on at the beginning of the pattern. If I had read closely enough to begin with I would have seen it.
Thanks for sending me back to "Knitting in the Round".
