Turkish Cast-On

Hold two needles parallel. Leaving a 6" (15 cm) tail in front, bring yarn from front to back between needles. *Wrap working yarn over top of both needles, around front, and under needles to back. Rep from * until number of wraps over top of needle equals half the number of stitches needed. Make sure that you have the same number of wraps on the bottom needle (Figure 1). Work stitches on top needle; stitches should be seated so that right leg is in front (Figure 2). Note that last stitch is anchored only by the tail; be careful not to pull free (Figure 3).
