How to Knit the German Twisted Cast-on Tutorial

I like to stick to what I know and what I like but I also love to learn new things.... I know, I just said two different things. ha-ha

My first method of casting on and one I learned back in high school is the Long Tail Cast On. The German Twisted Cast-on method is very similar to the long tail cast-on method. It provides a stretchier cast-on.


For me, some techniques and stitches are easier shown visually. This is one of them! So instead of trying to tap my keyboards (and deleting) and explaining it, I've recorded a video tutorial. Hope it's helpful!
