Maybe your go-to cast on is Long Tail method; perhaps it’s backward loop; or something entirely different! Kelly will cover these two methods – but would love to show you the Tubular Cast on; the German Twisted Cast on; the Crochet Cast on: and beyond. She will give examples of when to use these different cast ons – citing patterns that use each one. You can elect to cast on the Rikke Hat using the Tubular cast on for that nice, stretchy edge before you leave – or bring your own pattern that uses a cast on that you’ve never learned.
No homework required; please bring materials and pattern for the Rikke Hat(available free on Ravelry) if you’d like to try this project. Otherwise, a small amount of DK or Worsted weight yarn for practice with corresponding needles and a crochet hook should be sufficient for this session!
