If you want to decorate your project with a lovely slim cast on edge that looks the same on both sides of the work, try the Easy Picot Cast On method.
We used elements of this cast on in the criss-cross cast on edging that we discussed some time ago, but this simple and effective technique deserves some spotlight on its own.
The cast-on edge formed by this method looks great on scarves, blankets, hats, socks, mittens, shawls, sweaters, cardigans and pretty much anything else. The edge has a moderate amount of stretch and holds its shape well. The best part is – it is simple and quick.
Let’s see how we can do it step by step.
This edging looks great with any stitch pattern. It blends in with the smooth texture of stockinette and stockinette-based stitch patterns, and it provides contrast to textured stitch patterns like garter stitch.
The full step-by-step photo tutorial about this method, is a part of the Knitting Collection #5. Once you order your copy of this collection, you will instantly receive a “big PDF” (336 pages!) with this and 46 other tutorials included in the collection.
You will also receive three knitting patterns as a special bonus, so go ahead and get it all right now before you forget 😊
