addi FlexiFlip Knitting Needle Demonstration: How to do the Cable Cast On in the Round
After demonstrating how to use the addi FlexiFlip knitting needles last year, several friends and followers asked me to show them how to cast on with these needles. People were especially interested in a cast on that doesn't require holding the yarn in a "slingshot" position.

Before You Begin

The cable cast on works well for socks, the main thing that I knit with my addi FlexiFlips. The cast on has a fairly stretchy edge and is smooth and pretty.

There are two things I do differently when performing the cable cast on in the round, no matter what style of knitting needles I am using (dpns, circular or the FlexiFlips). First, even though this is technically not a long-tail type cast on, I cast on my stitches with the yarn tail instead of the working yarn. Second, instead of twisting my cast on stitches when transferring them to the left needle, I prefer to slip them over purlwise. I explain why both modifications are important in the video.


Thanks to Skacel for providing the addi FlexiFlip Bamboo needles and Schoppel Admiral Cat Print yarn used in this tutorial. These products are available locally at many yarn shops and online at Makers' Mercantile.
