Long Tail and Reverse Long Tail Cast On

Knitting Video Tutorial: standard long tail cast on (right to left) and the reverse long tail cast on (left to right).
After you teach your muscles the motion of the long tail cast on, it's not only a fast way to cast on stitches. It also creates a pretty edge and holds it shape well while still having a fair amount of stretch.

Before You Begin

The long tail cast on works niceley in the round, but it can present a problem when working back and forth in rows. When you turn your work over, after casting on, the stitches present themselves as purls. Often, that's not a problem, but sometimes you want to start with a knit row. That's when the reverse, or mirrored, long tail cast on can come in handy.
