Episode Three: The Cast-on

Show notes

Questions? Check the Ravelry thread first.

Today we will begin our sweater with the first sleeve, first casting on with the Two-Tail Long-Tail Cast-on, then working make-1 (m1) increases with a backwards loop. Plus a little guidance on altering sleeve length. Be sure to get more yarn if you plan to alter the pattern.

Happy knitting!

Kathleen’s yarn is Camelot in the Orkney colorway from Round Table Yarns
