From the Fabric.com blog, here’s a great technique: the Easy, Loose Cast on. Have you used this one before? If so, what do you think?
If you are like the majority of knitters, you cast on tight.Some just cast on a little tight, but most cast on really tight. This can be a realpain when it comes to sweater necks, top-down socks and even starting a nice scarf(you can clearly see where your knitting looses after the cast on edge). Youcan try teaching yourself to cast on loosely which can be an exercise inpatience or you can just try one of my 2 easy, loose cast-on methods. You will love them both.
