Hi everyone. I have a pattern that calls for the "Aloha"cast on on circular needles. I have never heard of that method. Does anyone know what or how this works? Thanks.

Toe up socks, H? I think it's used that way - best to google for a video or tut as my text would drive me wild; LOL!

Good luck, sweetie and happy new year to you and yours!

The one I use looks somewhat like this; it is Judy Becker's Magic Cast On.

I have done a few from the toe up and love it. I made cardboard templates sized for my daughter, my sister-in-law and myself so I can just slip the sock on and know just when to start the heel Next pair I am trying Cat's "tomato heel". I watched her video and it looks easier than wrapping. Once you get in to it, toe up both socks at one time are easy to do. Only problem is keeping the two balls untangled, but that is minor.
