Wimpy cast on

I’ve never heard of this :shock: !
Directions for the edging on the “Truly Tasha’s Shawl” (available on the Wooly West web site) call for a backward loop or Wimpy cast on. Can anyone explain that to me?
Thanks for any info :cheering: [color=darkred][/color]

Here’s a video on it.

:roflhard: wimpy cast on…lol, just means it’s the easiest one. I taught it to my four-year-old! :smiley:

Thanks :roflhard: !
That’s what my grandmother taught me when I was 5 years old! (Only she didn’t have a particular name for it)
