Different types of knitting projects need different types of edges—some edges need to be stretchy, some extra-sturdy, and others decorative. Various edges are achieved by working different cast-ons and bind-offs, and in this class, you’ll learn nine essential casting-on and binding off techniques step-by-step. In this class you’ll learn how to make a perfect slip knot; how to work the cable cast-on, long-tail cast-on, and backward-loop cast-on; how to work the standard bind-off, suspended bind-off, k2tog bind-off, lace bind-off, and three-needle bind-off; how to bind off in pattern; and when to use each of these methods to achieve edges that are stretchy, tight, extra-durable or decorative. Join expert Kate Atherley in this Annie’s video class, Cast-On & Bind-Off Knitting Workshop: 9 Essential Techniques, and add these important methods to your set of knitting skills.
