Okay, I get it. Ya NEED a stretchy cast off with knitting! Totally get that! That’s why I’m here to help and I gotta tell ya. My projects have never been lookin’ that good. Seriously! They have just a bouncy spring to them and I think we all know that regular cast off just doesn’t. Oh and make sure you start your project off stretchy with the stretchy cast on. Ya know, want it to match in all? Anyways, let’s get started!
Hold up, before we start. Did ya know Insta is my absolute fave place?!?! @AshleyDylanLife
Okay, all good!
Let's Stay In Touch
I took some extra time out of my day, just for you, to make this video! 🙂
Or this photo tutorial!!
So you’re at the end of your project, and you need to cast off, but you want it to be stretchy. Let’s start!
First, I made 1 knit stitch. I did not repeat this action.
This is where I started my repeat. I wrapped the yarn around the right needle one time.
And knit one stitch. I now have 3 loops on the needle.
I took the left needle through the last 2 loops on the right needle.
And flicked those 2 loops off the needle. That ends the repeat. Continue that all the way across.
Once I came to the very end, I had one loop left on the left needle. All I did was another repeat. So I’ll do that with ya.
First, wrap the yarn around the right needle once.
Then I made a knit stitch, which left me with 3 loops again.
I took the last 2 loops off the needle.
And I had 1 loop left. That’s okay. It’s supposed to be that way. This is how I finished off. Take your end of yarn and cut it leaving a long tail to weave in the ends. Pull it through that last loop on the needle.
(I didn’t want to cut my end, but it should look kinda like this.) Pull on the cut end to tighten it. It’s time to weave ends! I can show ya that right here!
Yay! You’re all done! You just learned how to make the stretchy cast on with knitting!!! 🙂
How did ya like this cast off? Did it make your knitting really stretchy?
And before I completely forget, I know sometimes you need some extra help with something. Well since I'm really busy, it can take me a day or 2 before I can get back to you. The thing is, I feel REALLY bad about that. So I created the Ashley Dylan Facebook group. It's got some really awesome women that love to share their projects, help out and get inspired from your cool adventures. But if you'd rather wait, you can always DM me on Insta for a lil extra help. :) All good?
