I’m starting a new project (fingerless mittens) which call for a Channel Island cast on (said to be strong and decorative) and I am having trouble following the instructions. Can anyone help me figure this method out?? Thanks.
I’d never heard of this cast over, but I did a bit of googling.
This explanation seems to be fairly clear:
There’s also a YouTube video tutorial here:
What a very cool cast-on! I’m looking forward to trying it on some baby clothes. Anybody have ideas on a bind-off to match it?
Is that Youtbe video from out very own OfTroy? Awsome
Thanks Marria for the plug!
it took me forever to learn this cast on (from text!) its a strong, stretchy, decorative cast on… 3 great qualities rolled into 1–but its not easy! (no cast on is perfect) and i don’ know any cast off that matches…
You’re welcome! It’s a great video–really clear and easy to follow. I love learning new techniques.
