This class is currently full. Please call Customer Service at 1-800-367-9327 to be put on the wait list.

*This class fulfills the Cast On, Bind Off Requirement for WEKP.

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.

Materials Required:

  • About 175 yards of good quality yarn (worsted or DK weight) with plain, smooth texture in a light color, rolled into 7 25-yard balls.
