The tubular cast-on is one of those. It’s very stretchy, so it’s useful for socks, mittens, gloves, and hats. It’s also the perfect beginning for ribbing, which it mimics.
Which is the best cast-on method?
The long tail cast-on is one of the most common cast-on methods. This is because it’s extremely versatile.
