|Set up the same as for long tail cast on.|
I now use a simple twist in the yarn. When doing a long tail cast on I make the first stitch as a loop and then carry on in the usual way. When I'm using the cable cast on I make the loop, move the needle to my left hand and then continue working in the same way that I would if it was a slip knot. Once the first stitch is completed it holds the knot-less loop in place.
|Place the needle facing down behind the strand of yarn.|
|Turn the needle up allowing the yarn to twist around the needle.|
