Video of German Long-Tail Cast On

This is a great cast on to use when you want an
elastic edge.
One thing to remember is that this cast on has
the effect of adding another row, so that if you
start into your pattern on the next row after
casting on, the right side of the work will have a
wrong-side row at the beginning.
NOTE:
for some reason the videos will only play on the top OR bottom screen; but they will both play—use the
top controls to play the regular cast on, and the bottom to play the twisted cast on. Sorry!
Video of
Twisted German Long-Tail Cast On

This cast on is even more elastic than the regular
Long-Tail Cast On because of that little twist at
the bottom.

This one also looks a little more similar front and
back than the regular Long-Tail Cast On in my
opinion.
