Knitted Cast-on for Left-handed Knitters

In our previous articles on knitting for left-handed people, we looked at the basics, how to use the Continental method as well as how to make a purl stitch.

In this article we will take a look at how you can cast on without needing a yarn tail.

There are many different methods of casting on knitting. This is a nice and simple method of casting on that also happens to complete your first row of knitting at the same time! Basically, it is just the knit stitch without sliding the stitch off the right needle (or left needle if you are right-handed).

This method of casting on can be especially useful for projects that require you to cast on a large number of stitches.

In addition, as this is a very strong cast on, it is also suitable for garment edges and other locations with lots of wear and tear.
In our next article, we will take a closer look at how you can increase stitches.
