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.

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?

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!

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.
