The Magic Cast-On isn’t just for toe-up socks! Here, designer Lorilee Beltman shows you how to use this versatile cast-on method in new, unexpected ways, from cuffs and hems to double knitting, provisional cast-ons and more. After you master the basics, practice your skills on six class projects, including a brimmed hat, infinity cowl and more.

Now that you've used the Magic Cast-On in its most common application, you're ready to explore other ways that you can work it in projects, such as perfect hems. Lorilee shows you how to eliminate the need to tack down hems or use waste yarn by using the Magic Cast-On instead.
