Italian cast on - rib with 1 knit / 1 purl

Tags: good to know,

In this DROPS video we show one way of Italian cast on, with 1 knit and 1 purl stitch. Start with a long thread end, the length depends on how many stitches are to be cast on. Hold the thread over the thumb and left index finger, insert the needle on the inside and from the back so that there is a cross = 1st stitch (= K). Take the needle over the back thread, up in the middle, under the front thread and up = 2nd stich (P).

Next stitch: Insert needle under first thread and up in the middle, over back thread and up (2nd K stitch). Continue like this with P and K to desired number of stitches. Finish the last stitch with a loop so that you "lock" the stitches. Turn, and work K over K and P over P.
The method gives a very elastic result.

We use the yarn DROPS Snow in the video.
