This is Selena’s favourite provisional cast-on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To work it you need some smooth waste yarn, a crochet hook, and your yarn and needles.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Start with a slip knot on your hook.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

wrap yarn around your needle and catch with the hook,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

pull yarn through slip knot to make a loop on the needle

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

move yarn behind the needle and repeat the sequence until you have reached the necessary stitch count

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Working with your knitting yarn, knit across the loops on the needle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To free the stitches from the provisional cast-on, pick-up the loops that are visible on the reverse of your knitting, just underneath the crochet loops

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

undo the last stitch crocheted

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and zip out the stitches

finish the stitches as desired.

Happy Knitting!
