Tubular Cast On – KDTV with Eunny Jang

Eunny Jang demonstrates the tubular cast on, also known as an invisible cast on.

Eunny writes: "We here at Interweave Knits believe that every knitter should have the tools to be their own designer and their own draftsman. We publish patterns in every issue, it’s true, but we don’t believe that knitting should always be about following every single pattern to a "T": Knitting is personal and intimate, and if you can make a modification to a pattern that makes it work better for you, all the better. We’re excited by all the different approaches knitters can (and do!) take to knitting up our patterns – knitting’s got a long history stretching out behind it, and every change, every experiment, adds to the collective store of knitting knowledge. To that end, Knits is also in the business of stocking your knitting toolkit with information about new techniques and clear-cut explanations of old ones. Knowing what to do, and why, and when, can be just as important as knowing the techniques themselves. Today, we bring you both the what and the why: a video showing you how to do a tubular cast-on, and a detailed look at a design from the Winter 2008 issue, with some thoughts on why – and how – you might make one technique choice over another."
