I have now knit a few hats…yeah!!
But I am not happy with the cast on edge of the brim.
I have always used the only cast on method I know.
Not sure what you call it. You essentially knit a stitch
But loop it over the left hand needle
I have looked on you tube at the long tail cast on but
Yikes it looks like it would take practice and to keep proper tension while learning. I tried the cable cast on,
And no problem going between the sts, wrapping yarn around needle like to knit, but I have a heck of a time grabbing the yarn to pull thru. It often splits. Is this normal?
So what is the best looking, yet easiest cast on method for a good looking brim?
