Cast On and Bind Off – Beyond the Basics - A Virtual Workshop - October 22nd
A Virtual Workshop with Amy Odin, Knit Chats
Saturday, October 22nd from 11:00am to 12:30pm
Many of our knitted projects call for a variety of cast on and bind off techniques that are unfamiliar to us. Sometimes projects don’t call for them, but we know they can be improved by using them! I’m Amy Odin (KnitChats coach, teacher and designer) and I’d like to teach you six of these techniques to add to your knitting tool box. Watch and try as I first demonstrate the following - the Cable Cast on, backward loop, a provisional cast on using a crochet hook, and the Garter Tab cast on. After this, we’ll move on to Jeny’s Stretchy Bind Off, (KTBL, K1) bind off, and the sewn bind off. You will be happy to discover how many more patterns you can access and improve after finishing this class!
Skills required: Must know how to knit, purl and execute a standard bind off.
- 2 sets of US 7 straight or circular needles
- 2 skeins of worsted weight yarn for practice
- crochet hook (5.5 or 6.5 mm)

- Using 1 set of needles, cast on 35 sts using 1 skein of yarn.
- Work in stockinette st for 1-2 inches (Knit the right side rows, purl the wrong side rows).
- Leave sts on the needles.
