Crocheted Cast On

This cast on method creates a cast on edge that perfectly matches a knitted bind off. It can also be used for a provisional cast on. It may be a little awkward to perform at first, but after just a few repetitions it will become more comfortable. You will need a crochet hook the same size or slightly larger than the knitting needle you will be using. 

Circular Cast On

A simple cast on for circular knitting. This cast on method only works with an odd number of stitches. If an even number of stitches is needed, simply cast on one stitch less than required then increase one stitch while working the first round.
