  • Excellent provisional cast on explanation. First time it’s really clicked for me. Much thanks!

  • Thanks for the great post and tutorials. I must say that the provisional cast on reminds me of the days on MDK when we read about a similar cast on. I think it was called “Cro-Kay”.

    • 🙂

  • Thank you for helping us lefties too! My cast on never unzips and it took awhile to figure out why. Now that will change. Hooray!!

  • Remarkable coincidence…but I just completed the winter hellebore cowl which used both of these techniques and I am ready to graft the ends together! Thank you for sharing!

  • I’ve found it doesn’t matter if I start with kppk from the beginning. It’s not necessary to start halfway through the pattern. I think that is what confuses most people.

    • I don’t do that setup, either! But if the yarn is coming off the front piece, I’ll run it knitwise through the back piece before starting, so that I can start with the full knit slip purl on the front piece.

  • This is a new way for me to crochet cast-on. I’m used to crocheting a chain and picking up the bumps but like this much better. Thank you, Jen!
