Scalloped Cast-on Method

The Scalloped cast-on method creates a cast-on creates a pronounced rounded, decorative edge. The edge is elastic and can also used where strength is needed.

Tools needed

  • Knitting board
  • Crochet hook
Before casting-on, review the good loom knitting habits. It's important not to wrap tightly.

  1. Make a slip not and place it on your crochet hook.
    You will be working around the knitting board starting on the lower rake on the left at peg 1 and moving to the right and then up to the upper rake from the right to the left and ending back up on peg 1.
  2. Place the crochet hook on the outside of the knitting board in front of peg 1 and bring the working yarn to the back of the peg. Grab the working yarn with your crochet hook and crochet a single stitch so that it wraps peg 1.

  3. Repeat step 2 All around the knitting board.

  4. When you finish to peg 2, place the wrap that is on the crochet hook on peg 1.
    From the front of the loom, you will see two wraps on each peg. On the back, you will see one.
  5. Wrap the board for your stitch pattern.
    You now have three wraps on each peg.
  6. Knit the two bottom wraps over the top wrap on each peg.
