2tLTCO is excellent because:
- you won't run out of yarn
- your yarn tail won't be too long
- you won't have to measure or guess how much yarn you will need
- when blending two skeins of yarn (hand-dyes, especially), you'll be ready to start alternating skeins right away
Next time you're casting on more than a handful of stitches, give this one a try, and let me know what you think in the comments below.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy knitting!
*Mother of modern knitting, Elizabeth Zimmermann, used the term "unvented" quite often as she turned her brilliant engineering brain to the wonders of knitting. There is no way I invented the 2tLTCO, but I have not seen it mentioned in any of the usual places. It grew out of the provisional LTCO that I like to use: Why not use the sameyarn for both strands of the cast-on? Ta-da! Ooh, I just realized it would be great for single-row stripes, too.
