Learn 2 Ways To Knit Provisional Cast On with a Crochet Hook

Learn 2 Ways To Knit Provisional Cast On with a Crochet Hook with Marly Bird. This is a very useful technique and one that Marly uses all the time. Perfect for a beginner knitter to learn and an advanced knitter to be reminded of :-) The purpose of the provisional cast on is to allow the stitches you cast on to be live once again (after you remove the crochet chain) and you can then knit in the opposite direction. It is often only used when a pattern indicates for it.
