You are *loosely* casting on 321 stitches for a bottom-up, crescent-shaped shawl; which cast-on method do you use?
b. Jeny's Stretchy Slipknot Cast-on
c. Helene Rush's Stretchy Cast On
d. Knitted Cast-On, demonstrated above by Nancy Bush
e. Another method not listed above.
I must get knitting but have been paralyzed over this question! I've already knit the smaller version of this shawl (221 stitches) and unsuccessfully used a not-loose-enough long-tail cast on on a needle 3 sizes larger than the working needle.
Does anyone have some experience, wisdom, or tips to share?
