Impeccable Knits: Shifting Stitches

classic cables with a modern twist

Provisional Cast On

PCCO ending chain 2-300

Provisional Cast Ons (PCO) are very handy for:

  • finishing both the top and bottom edges of a knit piece in the same manner
  • beginning a piece in the middle and knitting outward in both directions
  • add ribbings to a sweater – don’t work the ribbing at the beginning, begin with the main pattern using a PCO. Then, pick up the PCO sts and add the ribbing later.
    • Especially great because you can easily lengthen cuffs and bottom ribbings for growing kids.
    • Adjust the final sleeve / body length of a garment after the main piece is finished.

I like the crochet method linked above since it’s easy to undo later – you just unzip the crochet chain as you catch the PCO stitches. Always use a smooth yarn in a contrasting colour to make the PCO easy to undo.

I love wooden knitters’ tools. I suppose it makes perfect sense that someone with a site called Knits From the Woodlot should be as enamoured of wooden tools as I am. The photo above shows my newest acquisition, a wooden swift from ChiaoGoo. It has the qualities that I value in knitting tools – graceful…
