I was wondering what yall use for a Cast on/Bind off for just a length of knitting. ie: blankets and scarves.
Im positive its just a matter of choice but what one?
I just got done with my scarf and LOVE it by the way but one thing. I LOVE the look of the bind off (leap frog) but the cast on is WAY too loose.(knitted) Last blanket I did had same issue.
I guess I need to find a tighter cast on or maybe cast on with smaller needles?? Or what would be ideal would be matching CO/BO.
I would like to resolve this issue before I start in on this next blanket from the book 99 Yarns and Counting by The Green Mountain Spinnery Cooperative

I intend on using the crab stitch all the way around this one (or if you have other suggestions for a border, let me know that too)but it would be nice to have uniformity on the two sides, so I need to figure this out.
This is a Christmas gift for my MIL for next year. I have some more pressing projects I need to work on but I thought I would get this started sometime soon and just have it by to work on at leisure.
