All knitting must start with casting on, but there are times when you do not want the resulting cast-on edge to be permanent. This is where you need to use a provisional cast-on; that is, a temporary cast-on which you can later ‘undo’ to reveal live loops.
There are a number of different ways of making a provisional cast-on, some of which are easier than others. In this video Lucy demonstrates her favourite method, the provisional crochet cast-on: watch to see how simple it is to create a temporary cast-on edge using a crochet hook.
