this is an example of how Italian
Cast-on looks like it’s quite stretchy but holds the shape hi
welcome to my channel I’m Christina from stylishknitting.com and in today’s
video I will show you the Italian tubular cast on this works very good for
ribbing one by one and two by two I will show you also what to do if you want to
need to do a test or method in the round I also show how to make ribbing two by
two because it’s not very obvious after Italian cast on so keep watching Italian tubular cast on looks like this and this cast-on is with simple Italian
cast on what’s the difference I will show you that’s why it is called tubular because
it’s like a tube inside looks like if you would unravel it would have the
little hole gone through you could even get the needle inside there you go looks
like a tube and we’ll start with the same Italian cast on I have a separate
video specifically where I talk about this Italian cast-on and showed really
slow and in this video I will just show you the quick way because for this is
most important is how you do the next rows but we start the same is Italian so we can as I said in my previous video
about the Italian cast-on and I look which yarn comes on the bottom and I
know that from there I need to work now from this way and you create these bumps and which
represents the purl stitches and these are knit stitches so I will show
you one more time how a purl stitch is made Cast-on stitch because this is now
underneath so I know I have to go from from that side where the yarn is
underneath I go under both strands I come back through the middle and I grab
this yarn which is around my thumb and I twist it and I make this purl bump now I
go from the other side and this is much easier because I need to go on only
under one strand and I grab this yarn around my index finger and I made a knit
Cast-on stitch and I continue until I get the desired amount of stitches I will
show you how to need this tubular cast on in the round that’s why I need 2×2
ribbing – because I will show you what to do if you want to use it for
ribbing two by two four four four four and let’s say I will do two more and
last I always do just simple I just secure the stitches like an longtail
cast on so there you go I have these Cast-on stitches now the next two rows you will have to look what stitch it is
it’s actually with the bump it means it’s a purl stitch with this stitch line
going sort of all around the cast on this is the knit stitch first stitch I
usually, we actually can knit or I just slip let’s knit is this time I have this little bump it means it’s the purl stitch and when
it’s purl stitch we just slip as to purl with the yarn in front you just
leave it just like that and the knit stitch we knit
again you see a purl stitch with the bump underneath so we slip it s purlwise
like as the purl and with the yarn in front again this is the knit stitch here
we see it tells us it’s the purl we just slip it as the purl with yarn in
front knit slip it yarn in front
knit, slip it yarn in front knit and we’ll do like this on the end
of the row when we finish our first row of this
tubular cast-on we turn our work and we do the same on the other side because
we worked one side because we slipped one stitch and now we do the
same on the other side again I say this is a purl the purl stitches we slip
purlwise with yarn in front the knit stitches we knit and we worke like this
until the end of the row after our Italian cast-on and two setup rows of slipped
stitches yarn in front and the next stitch is two rows on this side we have
this very nice cast-on edge if you would be knitting flat then for ribbing one by
one you would start ribbing from the row number three and which would be you
could see where this is a knit stitch purl stitch knit stitch and you would
continue just like that for ribbing two by two we need to do as follow would say
two by two I start with the knit stitch now if I want 2×2 ribbing I should
have a knit stitch here but I have this purl stitch that’s not the problem what
I do we need to change place so I pick them off I send to the back to the other
needle this purl stitch and I bring the knit stitch now I have two knit stitches
side by side now two purl stitches here they are in place so
I just purl them here again I need to start with the knit stitch I need but
here a knitting second knit stitch but for that I just change places that
continue and like that until end of the row and you will have ribbing 2×2 this
is an example of how Italian Cast-on tubular Caston looks like it’s quite
stretchy but holds the shape and now I will show you what to do if you want to
join Italian cast-on with tubular edge in the round if you want to knit in
the round and you want to use this tubular cast-on then what my advice would
be first do all this to set up rows we cast on and to set up rows for tubular
edge flat I don’t advise to use it having cast on and then immediately to
join it in for knitting in the round because especially if you have a lot of
stitches on the needles you will definitely get lost and cast on row will
get twisted and it will be very painful and actually unnecessary so my advice is
to knit flat the needed amount of stitches and after that you just join
them in the round as usual it will be easier to look if the edge is twisted or
not in this stage you should be careful about that so
and one more thing you will need to twist like sort of inside out and if you want and if you want to
continue with ribbing 2×2 you do the same procedure I showed you before
with changing the stitches now I did the first knit stitch
in the 2×2 ribbing now I need to find second one I just switched them I take
them both off and the per stitch goes on the left hand needle and the knit stitch
is here and I continue need I have two knit stitches and I just the gap which
here I will show you at the end and how to close it and it will be invisible and
you just continue knitting ribbing to 2×2 again here is knit stitch but the
next one here is as you see a purl stitch but I need the knit stitch so I
just change them you can do like this if you are not afraid of losing stitches and I have the knit stitch again and
here I have two purl stitches and continue this way until end of the row
after you knitted some rows this is how ribbing 2×2 looks with the tubular cast-on using Italian cast-on method and now as you remember we have a gap left here this
is the yarn tail I already threaded it into my darning needle and to close the gap is the mixture of Kitchener stitch or some other suitable stitch to make it
as invisible so that I do it always is a little bit trying what looks good and
what’s not for example this is good enough in my opinion and then I just try
to close it as invisible as possible this was good enough and then I just
secure the end and fast enough and there you go! Thanks for watching please press
