Judy's Magic Cast-On mini class

You've heard the name, but it sounds intimidating. If you can work a slingshot long-tail cast on and make yarn overs, you can learn this magic cast on that is perfect for toe-up socks or projects worked outward from a central line.

Skill level is intermediate.
Prerequisite: must know how to yarn over and work in the round. Knowledge of slingshot method for long-tail cast-on is advantageous but not required.

Maximum 20 students.

mini workshop

Students receive a handout in booklet form.

No materials fee.

No homework.

class yarn (smooth, non-splitting, light or bright or medium color)
needles to work that yarn in the round any method you like (double points, 2 circulars, or 1 magic loop)

seamless toe-up sock
No special needs for the room set up. A whiteboard or flip chart is nice to have but not need to have. Room set-up should be tables and chairs either facing forward or in a U-shape.

This technique is a regular element of my toe-up sock classes at
The Whole Nine Yarns, Woodstock GA.
This class has been taught at
