Judy's Magic Cast On for Short Row Toes

Judy's Magic Cast On works well for toe-up socks with short row toes
The magic of double sided cast ons, like Judy's Magic Cast On, is that they allow you to knit in opposite directions on either side of the cast on stitches. This comes in very handy when when you're working short rows toes and you don't want to provisionally cast on stitches.

Before You Begin

Judy's Magic Cast On is often used when you are knitting in the round, beginning with an enclosed end. I also like to use it when I am knitting toe up socks with short row toes. In this case, our cast on stitches will be across the top of the foot, at the base of the toes.
