Casting on with two needles

 

Perhaps you have found yourself in front of a basket of fruit and were unable to resist the temptation to become an impromptu juggler with a pair of oranges. It has been proven that, with a bit of commitment, anyone is capable of making them rotate with only one hand, guaranteeing a valid diversion with which to surprise friends on a dreary autumn day (at least for five minutes of glory). The trouble is when two oranges become three and one hand becomes two. Something similar happens even in knitting, when from one needle we pass to two.

Casting on with two needles is advised when one must work with a high number of stitches. This increases the difficulty in calculating the length of thread in relation to the width of the work. You begin by creating a slip knot on the needle, the first stitch, leaving at least 15 centimeters of spun spun yarn as the ?tail?. At this point insert the right needle into the stitch and toss the spun yarn passing from left to right.

 Proceed by extracting the spun yarn through the stitch which must not fall off the left needle.

Avvio con due ferri

Place the stitch you have made on the left needle and lightly pull on the spun yarn to help the stitch to grip the needle. Continue, always following these three steps, until you have reached the desired count of stitches.
