Never Run Out Of Tail Casting On – The Infinite-Tail Method
If you have to cast on a lot of stitches, say, for a sweater or a long circular scarf, you might have trouble estimating the amount of tail you will need.
1) Don't use both ends of the same ball of yarn if you can possibly help it. Avoid tangles and use two balls of yarn.
2) If you do use both ends of the same yarn ball, when you are done casting on, make sure to cut the yarn that is coming from the outside of the ball.
This cast-on trick is a small part of the upcoming video knitting course, The KnitFreedom Video Guide To Cast-Ons, on sale this Friday, May 10th. Watch your email inbox for the presale info!
