The Anatomy of the Long-Tail Cast-On
Featuring independent designer Regina Fulton

It’s one of the most basic and versatile cast-on methods.
It’s very likely the first one you learned when you first learned to knit.
It was fiddly at first, but once you got the hang of it,
it felt like MAGIC and you never forgot how to do it.

Now you use it to begin a variety of knitting projects because it JUST WORKS.

But HOW does it work? WHY does it work?

And how can you get it to look and behave exactly the way you want, EVERY time? Regina Fulton is here for this month’s meeting to explain to us in detail about The Anatomy of the Long-Tail Cast-On (a.k.a. the German Long-Tail Cast-On). She will offer insights on the various aspects of this cast-on, give us pointers on establishing even tension, troubleshoot problems with elasticity, and share with us an alternative BRAND-NEW METHOD of casting on that establishes purl stitches on your first row. Be among the first to learn Regina’s Purled Long-Tail Cast-On! There’s more to this humble cast-on that you may never have considered, so come join us to learn how to harness your cast-on skills and be the boss of your knitting!
