Slip stitch crochet cast off

For a quick and neat edge, try casting off using a crochet stitch like a slip stitch. This is also good for yarns with less elasticity. Remember to use a hook that is the same size as your knitting needles. A more decorative yet firmer edge can be created using a similar method but with double crochet stitches.
