I'm not sure if there's a technical name for the cast-on I did for that... basically I
-make my slip knot,
-knit into it, but instead of slipping the old stitch off, I add the new st in front of the slip knot on the right needle
-then k into that one, slip the new st onto the right needle,
It makes a nice clean cast on edge - but it's really tight, I don't recommend it for anything you want to stretch at all!
I used US8 or 9 needles, I can't remember ( although I'm pretty sure it was 8's, I just thought they were 9's :rollseyes: ) because I read a comment in this threadthat said that using recommended size needles made the scarf stiff - I wanted a sturdier fabric, it was supposed to be a diaper bag...that was my practice swatch, but I got so intrigued w/making the colors look cool that I never did anything else with it :?? and ended up running out of yarn.... ~sigh~ anyway, I hope that helps a bit...
