Cast On, Bind Off - 211 Ways to Begin and End Your KnittingCast On, Bind Off - 211 Ways to Begin and End Your Knitting

Who knew that there were so many ways to cast on and bind off? I only learned a few versions--and was only good at one! Cast On, Bind Off - 211 Ways to Begin and End Your Knitting gave me the opportunity to learn new techniques for the start and finish of my knitting projects.

This book has excellent illustrations and thorough explanations. In this age, it's usually easier to look up a video tutorial on Youtube than study techniques out of a book. This book proves that sometimes the old-fashioned way is the best way. The step-by-step pictures and clear instructions make it easy to learn these knitting strategies.


This book is perfect for any knitter. Whether you're a beginner knitter learning the ropes or an experienced yarnie looking for a challenge, you'll love the creative cast on's and bind off's in this book.

When I first learned to knit, I could only find two types of cast on's. After trying both, I finally settled on a long tail cast on. I wish known about this book when I was just starting to knit. I could have seen the variety of options and found the easiest way for me.

Advanced knitters will love this book as well. Why should your beautiful patterns have dull and boring edges?  Cast On, Bind Off will show you creative ways to start and end your knitting. Now your edges will look just as intricate as the rest of your patterns. These are especially helpful for blankets, afghans, and scarves.

There are cast on and bind off strategies for all types of knitters--and even some crocheters! With 211 Ways to Begin and End Your Knitting, you have 211 reasons to fall in love in love with this book!
