This is also called the German Twisted Cast on.
This is a great cast on to add to your toolbox! It’s stretchy and it looks good too. Once you get the hang of it, you won’t believe that you didn’t always know this one!
This is a type of long tail cast on, so you’ll only be working with one needle. You hold the needle in your right hand and the yarn is in your left hand.
Step 1: Leaving a long tail (about ½” [1.3 cm] for each stitch to be cast on), make a slipknot and place it on your needle (this counts as the first stitch.) Using your left hand, place your thumb and index finger between the yarn ends so that the working yarn is around your index finger and the tail end is around your thumb. This is just like a long tail cast on. Hold the ends with your other fingers and hold your palm upward, making a V with yarn.
