Long Tail Cast On: Quick Knitting Tip!

Tipsy Tuesday Quick Knitting Tip of the Day!

Today's quick tip comes to us from Diana Haines of You and Me Knit. Her tip involves the long tail cast on.

Here's the problem...

How many times have you been casting on using the long tail method - only to run out of yarn on the tail..grrr!  

Diana has a quick tip so that never happens again!

"Try using both ends of the ball instead. Create a slip knot using the two ends and then begin casting on, one strand over your thumb and the other over your pointer finger. You won't run out of the yarn tail again."

Happy knitting!
