origami tubular cast on

The reason why I call it origami tubular cast on it is because you the way you fold the edge to cast it on.

Pros: Easier than figure 8 tubular cast on

Cons: Adds a little bit of bulk, stitches seem to slant a bit

Step 1

Following either the provisional or invisible cast on method, cast on the desired amount of stitches and knit two rows in stockinette stitch. Place the bottom stitches on dpn’s like you normally would.

Step 2

Fold the work in half and make sure that the knit side is facing outwards.

Step 3

You will now knit a stitch from the front needle and purl a stitch on the back needle. Repeat until you reach the end.

Oh nooo... too many purl stitches, if that happens, just knit the stitch. You may have to maneuver it a bit.

Step 4

Knit away. Just make sure you knit the knit stitches and purl the purl stitches.
