    I love this cast on. I got a sneak peak at it last night and am practicing this morning. Ready for kick-off.

    You are quite the little sleuth!

    Great video ! I’m waiting for my yarn to arrive in the mail so that I can get started on the KAL project. I have been following the other KAL’s, and now I’m ready to give it a try.

    Fabulous! Looking forward to knitting together when your yarn arrives:)

    I have knit this tubular cast on. I can not find the coordinating tubular bind off, on your pages.

    The bind off will be on my website on Thursday, January 22 to coordinate with my ongoing KAL. Tune in then!

    I would like to use this cast on for the top of socks. Is it stretchy enough for that? I love the way it looks in your example video!

    Yes, it is stretchy and can be used for socks.

    Hi Michelle! Is an Italian tubular cast-on the same as a tubular cast-on? Starting a hat…

    There are several variations of the tubular cast on. The Italian Tubular Cast On is worked with two strands of yarn. Watch my Double Knitting Cast On , but instead of two colors use two skeins of the same color.

    Hi Michelle! Thanks so much for all the great videos. I’m working on a garter stitch baby blanket, but I don’t like the long-tail cast-on that the pattern suggests. I really like the look of the tubular cast on in the Endgame scarf we worked on. Could I use the same tubular cast on for a garter stitch (just knitting every stitch instead of k2p2)?

    It only works for ribbing, not for garter stitch. How about the Channel Island cast on?
