Adapted by LindaButler ©2015 from Single Crochet Around a Ring Instructions.
I use the following crochet cast on method and substitute the left hand needle for whatever I am casting onto for example a pony tail band or a ring. The example below shows “crochet casting onto a pony tail band”, I transfer every 3 or 4 stitches to dpn’s as I work around the band.
- First make a slip knot and place it on a crochet hook held in your right hand, with the working end of the yarn running behind the knitting needle in your left hand.
- Step 1: Catch the yarn with the hook from in front of the needle.
- Step 2: Pull it through the loop on the hook to cast on one stitch.
- Step 3: Move the working end of the waste yarn back behind the needle.
Repeat steps 1-3 to cast on the required number of stitches.
