[Knitting] Circular Cast on - disappearing loop

Casting on from the middle--disappearing loop method
For knitted objects started in the middle, (shawl, hat) choose the "disappearing loop" method to cast on.   

  • There is no slip knot, so there is no hard nub in the middle of your work.
  • The first  stitches are not crocheted, so they are not larger and heavier than the rest of the work.
These advantages make disappearing loop the cast-on of choice for lace and the tops of hats, but any center-start knitting

HOW TO


1. Make a loop over two fingers of the left hand, as shown.  The tail end  lies OVER the ball end. In your right hand, hold a double-pointed knitting needle several sizes smaller than you will use for the knitting. Make the first stitch (follow the red arrow) by reaching OVER (not through) the loop, and catching the standing yarn [size=85%](standing yarn=yarn coming from the ball, also called the "ball end") to form a stitch which lies over the needle



2. Make the second stitch (follow the red arrow) by reaching THROUGH the loop,  catching the standing yarn "up from under" and drawing the standing yarn  back out of the loop, to form a stitch which lays over the needle.



Make the third stitch (follow the red arrow) as you made the first one:  reach OVER (not through) the loop, and catch the standing yarn "up from under" to form a stitch which lies over the needle



4. Continue, making each odd stitch OVER the loop and each even stitch THROUGH the loop and until you have the EVEN number of stitches you need (if you need to cast on an odd numbers of stitches, see point 7, below



5. Distribute the stitches onto 3 or 4 dpn and join the work by using the standing yarn to knit through the first stitch cast on.  Do not bcome discouraged if the needles drop out--which they WILL do several times, until you finally prevail.  [size=85%](HINT: try different until you find the ones which work best for you--bamboo needles are maybe easier for knitting with few stitches where needles are apt to fall out...)


6. After several rounds, tug on the tail end.  Ta da! The original loop into which you were working will disappear, and your work will feature a beginning rosette of the even, attractive stitches you worked into that loop. ([size=85%]HINT: give the tail an experimental tug right away, after first joining the work just to be sure the loop CAN tighten and didn't get tangled while making the join.  If the tail end did get tangled up, try, try again.)



7. If, for some reason, you need an ODD number of stitches (a seven-section hat top?) make the loop with the BALL end on top, and make the first (and all odd) stitch(es) by going THROUGH the loop for the first stitch, then OVER the loop for the second (and all even) stitch(es).  This way the odd stitch with which you want to end (the last stitch) is "held in" by having been made through the loop.

there are videos also that sow this method just search under
