Knitting pattern

DOUBLE STRANDED LONG-TAIL CAST-ON

 
Wrap the yarn from the ball around your forefinger, then wrap around left thumb, double- stranding yarn (length should be at least twice the width of the cast-on), then wrap around left thumb again. The tail end of the yarn is looped around left thumb. Insert needle upwards through double loop on your left thumb, wrap yarn on your forefinger over needle and pull through loop on your thumb to form a stitch. Take your thumb out of the loop and tighten the loop on the needle. Wrap doubled yarn around left thumb again and hold first stitch with right hand. The yarn from the ball wraps around your forefinger and leads to the needle. Continue forming stitches until the required number of stitches has been cast on.
