Provisional cast-on

This post is a copy of a post I made in the closed Yahoo Group, MonthlyDishcloths after a number of people asked me how I do the provisional cast on in my photo and mentioned in another post I made there:

I have been asked by a few of you in private email how I did the provisional cast-on in my photo:

Well, there are a few on the site that Janet recommends and that I have used in the past as well, knittinghelp.com:

and a number on youtube.com (where I learned most of my knitting after knit and purl).

This is the crochet chain provisional cast-on that I used this time:

but I also like this one which also uses wast yarn and a crochet hook:

Here is my “Yarncrafts” YouTube favourites playlist which shows many of the videos that I have used in the past and that I use again and again:

The other stages in my use of a provisional cast-on for this cloth are unravelling the crochet chain, catching the live knit stitches from the cast-on end of the cloth onto a knitting needle and then grafting the start and finish ends of the cloth (with no bind-off/cast-off and so still has live stitches on the needle) using Kitchener Stitch which can also be found on knittinghelp and youtube.
