What Knitters Are Saying
You have shown one of the best tutorials for a crocheted provisional cast on that I have ever seen — thank you! This cast on seems a bit laborious, but is probably worth the extra effort of pulling that yarn to the back for each stitch.

Cherry Purls Podcastabout How to Read Cable Symbols on a Chart tutorial
Very well explained. You covered many tips that are quite useful! These lifelines are definitely “Life Savers”. Thanks for the tips.
Judidootooabout Using a Lifeline
Once again, I must add my thanks for your informative videos. Your additional tips re the basic explanation are great! I especially like the “lifeline through the needle hole” tip, since I do use that type of needle — easier than the tapestry needle method.
