Learn the Channel Island Cast On

Learn how to start your knitting projects with a Channel Island Cast On and add decorative, elastic edges to sweaters and socks.

Make a Slip Knot
Measure out a tail that is twice the length you would need for a Long-Tail Cast On. Fold this in half and make a slip knot where the two strands come together, leaving a short tail for weaving in later. Place the slipknot on your needle.
