To begin with an open cast on and waste yarn, bring the desired number of needles forward slightly and place the waste yarn across the open hooks. Put a clip on both tail and ball end of yarn to keep it from falling off the needles.
|Hang comb over yarn in between needles and push needles back to edge of bed. Remove clip from ball end of yarn, thread up carriage.|
|Knit row. Knit several more, then start knitting with main yarn or knit one row of ravel cord then knit with the main yarn. The row of ravel cord makes it easier to separate the waste yarn from the main yarn later on. This cast on will need to be bound off later or the stitches will run.|
|Bring a desired number of needles to holding position. E-wrap with main yarn..|
Hang cast on comb over e-wrap and between needles. Push needles to forward working position making sure latches are open.
|Thread up carriage, begin to knit. This is a closed cast on and will not need any further finishing.|
|With latch hook tool, crochet cast on desired number of needles.|
|Hang cast on comb over yarn and in between needles. Push needles to forward working position making sure latches are open. Thread up carriage.|
|Knit with main yarn. This is a closed cast on and will need no further finishing.|
|When the knitting gets too long, slide the pins out of the stitches at the bottom and rehang the comb at the very top over the knitting, between the needles. Continue to knit.|
