Sueand says hello

Hello everyone, this is my first time on this site, I am a fairly new knitter and need some help. I have a pattern that says to do a pinhole cast-on. I have no ideal what this is or how to do it. I’ve search the internet on knitting help and can’t find any information on this type of cast on. I hope there is someone who can help me.
Thanks…Sueand

I googled and found ref to it in Stanley’s ‘Knitter’s Handbook’ …which I have.

Involves making loop with crochet hook and then pulling up the req’d number of loops around sides of that loop and placing them on knitting ndl (for the smaller version). OR working crochet chain loop and then pulling up loops around circumference, place on ndl for the larger version.

Does that help?

Assuming you crochet, it would be like starting center of doily or potholder but just pulling up loops instead of doing sc or dc.

Check for the provisional crochet cast on.

The pinhole CO is completely different.

Oh, it sounded like you described picking up stitches in the bumps of the crochet chain. Which is ONE version of a provisional crochet CO.

I’m very familiar with the prov crochet CO. My post didn’t mention anything about picking up in the ‘bumps.’

Okay sorry, I misread it.
