Technique Thursdays

At the end of all projects is the cast off! If you finished your scarf you need to get it off those needles and if you are a beginner, you might be stumped. Casting off is relatively easy, but the first thing I do is always remind myself to be loose. Almost all the time I find I wish I had cast off even looser. The edge of your piece can curl a bit if you don't or pull inward when you want a flat seam for let's say a sweater. So think loose, relaxed thoughts. Just last week I saw a useful trick that I haven't tried yet, but it sounds like it'd work. Knit off using a knitting needle one size up!
