Hello, I’m starting the Top-Down Sheer Sweater by Iris Schreier, and need to know what kind of cast on to use. I know I need something stretchy, but want it to be lightweight. Ideas? Thanks in advance!
Welcome to KH!
This is such delicate, pretty top.
There are complaints in the projects about the neck being too tight however. Apparently the designer casts on with a size 11-13 size needle.
You might try this stretchy cast on which is a variation on long tail.
Nice cast on. Very stretchy. It looks good too.
Thank you SalmonMac. That cast on looks good, and not nearly as complicated as some of the others I’ve looked at. I have researched all the other projects from the pattern and have notes to myself about the issues with the pattern. This is an important project for me as it’s for my son’s wedding! Thank you for taking the time to answer!
What a great occasion! Congratulations and best wishes to you all. Love to see a photo when you finish.
