How to do a Cable Cast-on
This is one of Sandy's favorite cast-ons. She taught herself how to do a cable cast-on with the instructions from the Vogue Big Book, a book she wouldn't be without! When casting-on, Sandy hates to not have enough yarn to complete a long tail cast-on or to waste yarn by having way too much tail left over. So a cable cast-on is the perfect solution! It makes a firm, less stretchy edge that is perfect when there is no ribbing at the beginning of your project.
Insert your right-hand needle between the stitches before you tighten up the last stitch made. This takes the struggle out of inserting your needle between the stitches.
This cast-on give a lovely twisted look to your edge. If you slip your newly made stitches from the right-hand needle to the left straight across it gives a softer twist and when you transfer your stitches giving them a twist, as Sandy does, it makes a firmer twist on the edge. Knitter's choice!
