I used the tutorial on Chinese Waitress cast on. I love it but did not find it easy to learn but now it goes quickly, I like the way it looks.
What on earth is the Chinese Waitress cast on???
I have just checked on You tube, yes, it is fascinating - perhaps I will try it out
I will send to you if I can
ok was trying to send to you glad you foundit
i love the look of that. after it is done, don't like all you go thru to get there...but after you get use to it, prolly it is fine.. the link is.. http://knitfreedom.com/cast-ons/chinese-waitress-cast-on
and the video is at the bottom of the page..
thought this was a joke...chinese waitress cast on.. sounded like a joke, it isn't...amazing..thanx
oh, you posted one while i was looking for it. now, i like the one i have for the very end. on her's she had you put the yarn to the front to put the last stitch onto the needle and i like that better.. what do you think?
Really I interesting. I will have to try this. Thanks for sharing.
Supposedly, someone got the pattern from a waitress who is Chinese, thus - the name of the technique.
I like that both sides are nice - unlike the long-tail cast on where the pretty side isn't the first row (RS) of most patterns.
If I want the nicer side I have to do a row before starting the pattern. Hard to explain.
Excellent that Liat put the working yarn in front after the last cast on. Yes, looks better.
Also, it's a short tail cast on - and won't run out of yarn when casting on, as often happens with long-tail method. I like that, too!
Interesting ...might give it a try just to learn something new...thank you for posting.
Thanks, will give it a shot. Learning something new always takes time and we knitters like to learn new things. (Or at least I do.)
Interesting, but seems like it would be very slow and tedious. I'm amazed at how many ways there are to cast on (which I've learned from KP). Always thought the long tail cast on was the only way. Boy, was I ever naive.
Nice look. Saved to favorites to try. Thank you for posting.
