Learn to Knit: Cable Cast-On Knitting Tutorial
What is a Cable Cast On?
A Cable Cast On is a very tidy cast on that gives a neat, 'cable line' edge and is nice and firm.
It is ideal for situations where you need to add stitches to work in progress such as at the front edge of a neckline or at an underarm.
How to Work a Cable Cast On?
