The easiest method used to start your loom knitting project is the e Wrap cast on. You’re basically just wrapping your yarn around each peg to create a base line to work on.

This simple technique can also bring about some negative outcomes

First I want to show you how to do the e-Wrap cast on , your options and how to fix those unseemly results.

Three Easy Steps

    Hi great site, very helpful!!
    I do have one question and I didn’t see a section for questions. I am a beginner I have made about four hats. On every one of them I have a wide gap at the beginning near the beginner peg and it continues throughout the entire hat. It looks like every other row except it is much wider and very noticeable. Am I missing something here? I keep re watching videos and I cannot see that I’m doing anything wrong. Thanks!!

      Are you only using the e-Wrap stitch. This is a VERY loose stitch and it be happening when you increase a row. You might be a loose knitter and a tighter stitch may be a better option for you. I think you should consider the Uwrap version of the knit stitch – Here is a post with all 4 versions: Click HERE
