The Long Tail Cast on is a fast way to make a beautiful edge and it is a better edge than most of the other methods. Fast and Good and Easy, now that is a skill worth mastering!

It may look a little hard at first, but it is really easy once you have followed along with the video a few times.

I’ve included one video to show the long tail cast on and another video showing the “stretchy” cast on.

These are often used with circular needles and socks (among lots of other uses) so I’ve made a special offer on my etsy site, http://www.sevenyaks.etsy for circular bamboo knitting needles. And you can check out my custom sock blocker with needle gauge. See below for details.

Here is the long tail cast on.

Here is a video from Jimmy Beans Wool showing the “Stretchy Cast On” which is good for socks, cuffs and collars and anywhere you want a little elasticity.

Sometimes the Stretchy Cast On is called the Old Norwegian Cast On or the German Cast On.

The satiny finish on these natural bamboo circular knitting needles will hold your stitches securely without ever being sticky. They are lightweight, smooth and quiet. Not slippery and noisy like some plastic or aluminum knitting needles. Great for the beginner or the veteran.

It is like getting one size free with these low prices.

We also have straight bamboo needles sets and single pairs of straight, circular and double pointed knitting needles at very good prices.

My custom designed sock block with needle gauge is a popular item with sock knitters. Take a look.

I had a good request recently.

Bamboo Knitting Needle Sets of 5, sizes 0 -4

Bamboo Knitting Needle Sets of 5, sizes 0 -4

A few of my customers where just interested in a certain size range of the double pointed bamboo knitting needles. They only needed sizes 5 through 9 for example.

These knitting needles are fabulously smooth, lightweight and a joy to work with. The more you use them the better they become! Each set of 5 needles is clearly identified with metric and US size so there’s no confusion.

So I put together 5 packs of needles in groups of 5 sizes.

0 through 4
5 through 9
10 through 15
See at www.sevenyaks.etsy.com
They saved money off the single pair prices. For example… The price for one set (5) of double pointed bamboo needles (size 4) is $5.50 plus $1.50. And that is a good price.

Now the mini-set of 5 sizes 0 through 4 is only $21.00 Plus $3.50 shipping and handling.

It is like getting one set free.

Even the circular needles are at least 20% cheaper than the individual needle price, and it was great to begin with!

This gives customers the savings they would get from buying quantity without buying a complete range size set.

I’ll be getting the pictures taken of the short straight and circular needles soon. These needles have similar savings on their sets as well.

NEEDLE ALERT!
I  have added double pointed bamboo knitting needles in 5,8, or 9 inches. I did some research and I was shocked to see what the big boys are charging.

These are quality bamboo knitting needles and I don’t have the overhead the big boys do. Why pay more for the same quality??

These knitting needles are fabulously smooth, lightweight and a joy to work with. The more you use them the better they become! Each set of 5 needles is clearly identified with metric and US size so there’s no confusion.

Check out the selection here. There’s no additional shipping charge if you add to a yarn or book purchase. Convo me for shipping rates for multiple knitting accessory purchases and I’ll be happy to let you know the amount.
