Remembering my knitting resolution of thinking through cast on's and cast off's, I used the tubular cast on (my favourite version here) for Thermis.
What a great little pattern. I love that you can knit such a fashionable gift with such little yarn...patons classic merino, no less...is such little time! I plan to make at least a couple of these to keep for gifts for next year. This one I was hoping my hubby may try. It looks manly enough!
I decided since I used the tubular cast on that I would try a tubular cast off.
I love it! It is a really stretchy cast off and would be great for so many projects, especially toe up socks! It produces such a professional looking finish.
Now, I must warn you that it involves kitchener stitch...like a lot of it! Of course it depends on how many stitches you have on the needles....lets just say 124...divided by two of course, so 62 stitches on each needle...it is not for the faint at heart.
Since I have another Thermis on the go, I will show you how it did it....
