Use the cable cast on for a strong, stretchy edge making it perfect for top-down socks and other rib stitches. Try using a thicker yarn to make a decorative edging. The cable cast on is also useful for adding stitches on mid-pattern.

Written instructions with photos

The first two stitches of the cable cast on are the same as the knit cast on.

  • Place slip knot on the needle in your left hand, this counts as the first stitch.
  • Insert the right needle in the slip knot loop from front to back.
  • Wrap the working end of the yarn under and then over the right needle (this is called a yarn over).
  • Pull the right needle and yarn through the loop on the left needle.
  • Pull the right needle to make the new loop a bit bigger and slip it onto the left needle to make the second stitch.
  • Give the working end of the yarn a tug if the new stitch is too loose.
