I’ve been using the long-tail cast-on, which I find quick and easy, but I want to find another method where I don’t have to calculate the yarn I need. I’ve tried the knitted-cast on. It’s easy enough, but there’s something really strange: when I start to knit the first row, I see that the stitches look strange. They don’t look like they’re mounted on there correctly. Normally each stitch should have a little bump, but in this case they don’t. What could be wrong? I’ve also tried a cable-cast on, and then it works fine.
Can anyone help me figure this out?
(Edited to add: I noticed that the the knitted cast-on doesn’t look as neat as the other methods either. It has a kind of twisted appearance with gaping holes. I see this from my work but also from photos.)
