Cast On without Frustration!

 
From Our Friend Knit Purl Hunter
Big projects often require hundreds of stitches and casting on these large numbers can prove to be challenge. No one likes to cast on 200+ stitches only to find that the yarn tail is too short to complete the final few stitches. It has happened to everyone! Fear not, here is a video to help you avoid this vexing problem. 
The Long Tail Cast On is the most widely used cast on due to its clean line and universal qualities. Its biggest drawback is estimating how much yarn to leave for the cast on tail. 
Watch This Video & learn how to NEVER run out of yarn again.
