You've assembled your yarn, wound it into balls or those neat little cakes you can make on a ball winder. You've scrounged up the proper needles and assembled a pile of stitch markers. You're ready to launch into a new project. Almost every project begins with a cast-on row. Many new knitters struggle with this initial step and the rows that follow it, while more experienced knitters will often fall into a cast-on rut, using the same one for all of their projects. There are myriad methods for Casting On and I am happy to share some of the classics with you this week.
