The long tail cast-on is one of the most common cast-on methods used in knitting. In this video, Jen Lucas shows you how to work this cast-on. When working this cast-on method, in most applications, the next row is a wrong side row. It creates an edge that is fairly elastic, making it a good method of starting most knitting projects.

In the video, Jen demonstrates how to measure for the long tail cast-on, ensuring that you have enough yarn to complete it. Now that you know how to cast on, you’re ready to start your first knitting project!
