A Cornucopia of Cast-Ons and a Bevy of Bind-Offs*


Do you always use the same cast-ons and bind-offs for everything you knit? Here at WEBS, we insist that everyone know the long-tail cast-on and the traditional bind-off, but there is a world of other methods out there which can make your knitted items look very professional indeed: tubular cast-on and bind-off, knitted cast-on, cable cast-on, picot cast-on and bind-off, chained cast-on, provisional cast-on, knit 2 together bind-off, purl 2 together bind-off, I-cord bind-off, yarn-over bind-off, just to name a few. If you'd like to add more style to your knitting, come join us for this class. Required Text: Cast On, Bind Off by Leslie Ann Bestor.

  • A few yards of mercerized cotton. This is to be used as stitch holders and to make provisional cast ons

  • Tapestry needle
  • Crochet hook in the same or similar size to the needles you are using
  • Your Knitting Tool Kit
