Italian cast on with a stable edge - rib with 1 knit / 1 purl

Tags: good to know,

In this DROPS video we show one way of Italian cast on with a stable edge, 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 stitch (P). Next stitch: Insert needle under first thread and up in the middle, over back thread and up (K). Continue like this with P and K to desired number of stitches, finish with a P stitch. Turn the piece and twist the threads twice. Start 2nd row with K1, place the yarn in front of the needle and slip the P stitch over to the right needle as if to purl, K the next stitch. Place the yarn in front of the needle and slip the P stitch over to the right needle as if to purl, K the next stitch, continue like this the entire row, but P the last stitch, turn. K 1, place the yarn in front of the needle and slip the P stitch over to the right needle as if to purl, K the next stitch. Place the yarn in front of the needle and slip the P stitch over to the right needle as if to purl, K the next stitch, continue like this the entire row, but P the last stitch, turn. Continue with K over K and P over P. This method gives an elastic and nice result and a stable edge. We use the yarn DROPS Snow in the video.
