Also known as the Alternating Cast-On, German Cast-On and Latvian Cast-On, this is a cast-on with a lot of names! I love it for anything that needs stretch – fingerless mitts, cuff-down socks, hats, or anything else!
This is a long-tail cast-on, so try to ensure you have left enough of a yarn tail for the stitches you need!
Here’s a video of me working the Estonian Cast-On for my Dromanach mitts! The video has no sound, but it works steps 2 to 10 repeatedly.
