• The cable cast-on's claim to fame is that you can use it to cast on stitches in the middle of a row — it creates a sturdy edge, but is not a good fit for edges that need a bit of stretch.

    1. 1. Make a slip knot and place it onto your left needle.

    2. 2. Knit into your slipknot, but don't drop the stitch from your left needle.

    3. 3. Slip the new stitch from your right needle back onto your left needle.

    4. 4. Insert your right needle between the two stitches on your left needle.

    5. 5. Wrap your yarn around the right needle and pull through a new stitch.

    6. 6. Slip the new stitch from the right needle back onto the left.

    7. 7. Repeat steps 4-6 until you have the number of stitches you need.
