Worked in a similar way as Long-Tail Cast-On, but trickier and using a longer tail. This inserts an extra twist into the thumb loop, and there is more drag and difficulty when snugging up each stitch.

Try to avoid over-tightening in your attempt at making this even. When done at a good tension, this can gave a nice springy edge. Some sock knitters love this CO.
