This is an easy way to start a piece of circular knitting from the center of the circle. It's really convenient for knitting projects like coozies, shawls, or hats.  The fact that a crochet hook is involved can be intimidating for some knitters but shouldn't be. It's fast, easy, and you'll only have to pick that hook up for a couple stitches before you're back to knitting in the round. If you have a afghan crochet hook this may make it easier.

Things you will need

yarn
crochet hook or afghan crochet hook. note: this should be the same size as your knitting needle.
doble pointed needle or circular needle

Wrap Your YarnWrap your yarn around your non-dominant hand as shown above so that your pointer finger has one loop of yarn on it. Both your long tail and your short tail of yarn should be on top of your fingers and palm.

Put your crochet hook through the loop and hook the working yarn,



Pull the long tail under and through the main loop on your finger.  




You have made your first stitch. Tighten it a bit, but not too much: if the stitches are too tight, the tail won’t move through them easily, and you’ll have a heck of a time closing the hole later on.

Starting the Second StitchThe process for the second stitch is the same as the first. Let's do another together. Pass your crochet hook under the main loop and long tail. Catch the long tail with your hook.




Pull It Through

now you have 2 stitches on your hook. keep doing this in this matter to you have the required stitches.




Once you have cast on your desired number of stitches, you can transfer them



Once you have all your stitches transferred, start knitting! After you have knit a few rows, pull the loose yarn end (the short tail) and the stitches should close-in creating a tight center, pull until the center is as small as you would like it.



i have collected this information threw a number of places. there are also videos on how to do this. New Stitch a day has one for left handers as well as right handers.


i hope you have found this intersteing and informative.

thank you
