Provisional Cast On: a One-Step Method

Provisional Cast On: a One-Step Method

A Provisional Cast On keeps cast-on stitches “live” so that they can be knit later.
It’s a very useful technique when you’re not sure what kind of edging you’ll want or how long to make something.
A Provisional Cast On allows you to make these decisions when you can to respond to the actual finished piece.
Sometimes a Provisional Cast On is also used to create underarm stitches in top-down sweaters.
There are, of course, tons of other fabulous uses of this cast on… You’ll see!

This video demonstrates a one-set method, which casts stitches directly onto the needle, rather than first crocheting a chain and then picking stitches up from that chain. For that method, check out our Provisional Cast On Tutorial: A Two-Step Method.
