Wonder Woman Wrap KAL – Day One!

Since I am not sure if we have many newbie knitters in the group, I figured I would post some tutorials to help out in case any one gets stuck.

First things first, let me show you how I do long tail cast-on to save my yarn for actual knitting.

I grab the outside and inside of my yarn cake and tie them together in a slip knot and place it on my right needle. Then I start casting on the 157 stitches called for in the pattern.

Once you cast on the 157 stitches (not including the slip knot stitches), I cut the yarn coming from the center of my yarn cake . I do this so I don’t have to try and guesstimate/premeasure where my slipknot needs to be for casting on. This way I have less yarn waste.Wonder Woman KAL Shawl

When I change directions and work Row 1 of the pattern, I just drop the slip knot stitches at the end. I usually just keep the slip knot there until I weave in the ends on my project. At that point you just pull the ends to release the slip knot and weave in your loose ends.
