How to Cast Off

Are you ready to finish off your project? Casting off isn’t too complicated but there are a few things you can watch out for.

In the example, you can see I refer to casting off in the garter stitch because that’s what the sample is. When casting off and having your finished edge look the same as your project, the concept of putting the loops over the other is standard. However, you need to honour the stitches you have set.

For example, your sample has Knit 2, Purl 2… You won’t just do the knit stitch to cast off. You will continue with the same pattern. Finishing off, unless prescribed by the pattern of just doing its knit style will impact the look of the final row. So use the method and follow the stitches you have already have in place when doing the final cast off-row.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
