Double Cast-on Method

The Double cast-on method creates a cast-on similar to the double / long tail / two-strand cast-on in needle knitting. It creates a firm, elastic edge that is elastic that is perfect for ordinary edges and ribbing.

Tools needed

  • Round loom or rake
  • 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.
    If you are circular knitting, you will be working around the loom from right to left to cast one and if you are flat knitting, you will be working around the loom from right to left.
  2. Place the crochet hook on the outside of the loom in front of first/last peg 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 the first/last peg.

  3. Repeat step 2 for the number of pegs that you need.

  4. When you get to the last peg/first peg, take the wrap that is on the crochet hook and place it on the first/last peg.
    From the front of the loom, you will see two wraps on each peg except for the last peg in flat knitting.
  5. Knit off all pegs with two wraps.
    For the last peg in flat knitting, e-wrap it and knit off or slip if you are slipping the first stitch of each row.
