Thank you for this video! I read the cast-on instructions and could not figure out what they meant. This was VERY helpful!

The video is good but could be improved. It would help if; 1. The video was slower 2. You showed how the wool is held in your hands before you start 3. How to create the first loop.

Dear Winifred, do not hesitate to click on "pause" when necessary so that you can see step by step how to do (and do it at the same time). You may find further help in the other video "Cast on - continental method" - see index. Happy knitting!

Bedankt voor de video; had hoegenaamd geen flauw idee hoe ik er moest aan beginnen.

Je vais essayer cette technique parce que je monte mes mailles de façon beaucoup trop serré ...

Denne metoden - telt-metoden bruker de fleste elevene å forstå og får til: 1) Trekanten mellom pekefinger, tommel og pinne ligner et telt. 2) Legg ”teltet” ned i håndflaten. 3) Gå med pinnen inn i løkken (rundt tommeltott) og hent tråden på pekefinger. 4) Dra tråden gjennom løkken og stram forsiktig løkken på tommelen.
