Knitting Tutorial: Invisible Circular Cast On

Knitting Tutorial: The invisible circular cast on, or disappearing cast on, works well for items that are knit in the round and start with a small number of stitches.
If you have ever made a magic ring in crochet, the invisible circular cast on is going to be a breeze! I just love when I can loop my knit and crochet skills together.

Before You Begin

The invisible circular cast on is sometimes called a disappearing cast on or a pinhole cast on. This method for casting on stitches is closely related to the provisional cast on. Generally it's used for items that are knit in the round and start with an enclosed end and 6-10 stitches. This cast on works well for toe up socks, top down hats or mittens and amigurumi figures.
