I haven't found anyone that casts on for knitting the way I was taught many years ago in junior high. So when Kim asked if I could send a YouTube tutorial reminding her of the way I'd shown her, I decided to try and make my own. This is the left handed version of the method. :)
I searched YouTube's casting on videos and found the two needle method. Wow! that looks so easy. I should probably break down and learn another method because you don't have to estimate the length of your starting point with the two needle or long tail cast on. But for now, I still use this because it's what I know.
