Cast-On
Make a slipknot and place it on the right-hand needle, leaving a long tail.Place the thumb and index finger of your left hand between the two threads. Secure the long ends with your other three fingers. Hold your hand palm up and spread your thumb and index finger apart to make a V of the yarn around them. You have four strands of yarn: 1, 2, 3, and 4 (Figure 1). Place the needle under strand 1, from front to back. 1x1 rib cast on fig 1
Place the needle over the top of strand 3 (Figure 2) and bring the needle down through the loop around your thumb (Figure 3). Drop the loop off your thumb and, placing your thumb back in the V configuration, tighten up the resulting stitch on the needle. 1x1 rib cast on fig 2
