Tip of the Week

A cast on rag is very useful when you need to cast on stitches. It can be used in place of scrap yarn in any situation, but it is especially useful when casting on stitches in the middle of a piece.

This tutorial covers 3 types of cast on rags, including crochet as well as suggestions for using them.

Thanks for the idea of a crocheted cast on rag. The knitted ones always curl and ruffle for me. Double crochet seems best; my claw weights get a grip without a struggle. - Meg

What Others Are Saying..
I have spent the last couple of hours reviewing this website as I haven't done in some time and I must say that I am so very impressed. You've grown!!All that is offered here I just stand amazed... No wonder that I have kept my subscription current all this time without one iota of regret...its sorta like a a beloved magazine sub that you would rather do without something else rather than not have "Knit it now" available. Just want to say thank you Sue and there are lots of silent thank yous breathed that you never hear. Keep it up Girl, we all, new, old or somewhere in between need this knitting classroom.
