Casting On: Left handed version
(holding hook in your left hand)
Casting on is a simple step, and the first thing that you need to know.
I took great care to try to explain in detail, as this is a page for beginners.
||Hold the loose end of the thread against your
first two fingers, using your thumb.|
||Wrap the thread up and over your fingers,
making an "X", as shown here.|
||Place your thumb on the "X", to hold in
||Rotate your hand towards you, to see the tops
of your fingers.|
||Insert the hook under both threads, and hook
the second thread.|
||Pull the second thread under the first
||Slide the threads off your fingers, as you
pull the hook through.|
You have finished "casting on"!
