Mini-Class: Judy's Magic Cast-On
If you've wanted to make toe-up socks but are stymied by how to get started, let us introduce you to Judy's Magic Cast-On! First published in 2006, Judy Becker's method for a seamless start to any project that would otherwise require a provisional cast-on has revolutionized sock knitting.
In this hour-long mini-class, you'll learn how to do Judy's Magic Cast-On. Lindsey will be demonstrating on Magic Loop, but the technique is sufficiently similar on DPNs or 2 circulars that you should not have any issues following along if you prefer either of those methods.
Please provide your own materials; Lindsey will be using a worsted-weight yarn and larger needles for the convenience of demonstrating and teaching via Zoom. You will find it easiest to follow along if you're using a light color of yarn.
- Class date/time: Sunday, October 25, 7 - 8 PM PST
- Prerequisite skills: casting on, knit stitch, purl stitch, working in the round
- Materials recommended: US7 needles in your preferred Magic Loop length, DPNs, or 2 circulars; approximately 10g of worsted-weight yarn in a light color
