Cast on Comb


An accessory, often with a series of wire hooks that holds the initial cast on stitches for a smooth cast on.

Is a cast-on comb required? There is often debate among machine knitters on this subject.

If you have a cast on comb, try using it. If not, try using a scrap and ravel cast on method. The scrap will allow you to hang weights.

This is one of the many "rules" of machine knitting that can be broken based on your experience and preference.
