Casting on

Even though you are using several needles it is often easier to cast the total required number of stitches onto one needle first. It doesn't matter which method you use, although if you are working the ribbed cuff of a sock, you will want a stretchier cast on edge.

  • Casting on - Step 1

    Step 1

    Cast all your stitches onto one needle

  • Casting on - Step 2

    Step 2

    Evenly distribute the stitches onto the stated number of needles, in this case four. Starting with the first cast-on stitch, slip a quarter of the stitches onto a new needle. Repeat this until you have the same amount of stitches on each needle. You may want to place a round stitch marker between the last two stitches on the last needle to indicate the beginning of the round.
