Starting a knitting project can be daunting. I used to get my mum to cast on for me but now I cast on with confidence. The cast on method I use is called long tail cast on. It mean that you use a tail of the yarn as well as your main bundle.
Når man ikke er en nybegynner , kan det å legge opp masker vare litt skremmende. Jeg pleide faktisk å la min mamma legge opp for meg. Men nå er det ikke noe problem.
Min favoritt metode er kryssopplegg, der man bruker en hale av garnet sammen med hovedgarnet.

Measuring how much you need
For me this is the hard part as it depends on how thick your yarn is and how much you need to cast on. With lace, sock yarn and similar a rule of thumb is to have an arms length for 50 stitches. I prefer to use both ends if the bundle if I cast on higher than 50 stitches at the same time.
With thick yarn remember that you will need a longer tail as it uses more space to cast one stitch on. But it’s better to have to much as you can always trim the tail. Alternatively, you find both ends of the yarn, tie a slip knot and cast on – remember to remove the knot when you start knitting as this time is not a part of the stitches.
There is loads of ways to cast on but I find this way the easiest to start of with.
Practice casting on so you can get a smooth start of your project. If you feel that you cast on tight, like me, try to cast on using both your needles together or cast on using a needle size two number bigger. This will make it easier to start and create a more elastic work.
