This way of doing a long tail twisted cast on was tricky for me to learn. I think it might be easier for someone who uses the English, two hands method. Even if I use another cast on I think I’ll still do my first stitch the way she does it. I’ve attached a photo showing how it worked for me in the round without doing anything to minimize the big gap or jog; I just started knitting. What looks like a big sloppy loop at the join is just the tail hanging out in the back. With a standard long tail cast on I prefer to skip the slip knot but that leaves me with a big, ugly, sloppy first cast on stitch. This got rid of it! If someone uses a knitted cable cast on a lot they might want to try starting it with the first stitch done the way she does it. I will try it eventually but now I’m more interested in working on my wrist warmers and using leftover yarn.
Mods, if this should be in a different place please move it.
