two at a time cast onI know I’m not the only person who pins things on Pinterest and then never looks at them again. (Please tell me I’m not alone in this!) So to help encourage me to look back at those things that I’ve pinned I decided I would start sharing some of those pins with you.

(Incidentally, if you want to see my knitting pins, check out my Knitting pin board. Have a pin to share? Let me know!)

This week I’m looking back at a great tutorial from Knit Freedom about how to do a two-at-a-time cast on for the Magic Loop method. You’ve probably heard of doing two-at-a-time socks before, which is excellent because you don’t have to deal with second sock syndrome, and your socks will always come out the same length.

But it’s great to knit other tubes two at a time, too. Think about knitting two legwarmers to the same length, or avoiding having one sleeve of your sweater come out half an inch longer than the other.

This tutorial includes step-by-step written and photo instructions as well as a video, so no matter how you learn you can figure it out from this page. So great. And it reminds me I need to knit two-at-a-time more often!

    I’ve been wanting to try this, but I’ve struggled with the cast-on. Thanks for sharing!

    The link to the Pinterest board made my day. Consider it Followed. :)

    Thanks for the pin, Sarah! I love knitting two-at-a-time, and I’m really happy you liked my tutorial enough to share it here on your blog!
