    Mega-awesome! I commented on YouTube itself but will also ask here if there is any particular way you like to fasten off the “bind off” of running the working yarn through the top live loops. I can see some significant handling of a gauge swatch when washing and blocking and even if the tail were long (like 3 or so times the width of the swatch), with some of the swatches that grow, I wonder if it would be safer to fasten off the “bind off” rather than leaving a lengthy loose tail.

    • I don’t do anything with the yarn, but if it makes you nervous, you can tie a few knots in it so it can’t pull through (you can even tie on a stitch marker that could act as a stopper)

    This looks a lot like the (what I call, because I am not sure of the right name) “invisible tubular cast on for ribbing.” Is it similar?

    • It’s closely related, but quite different. You are thinking of the Italian Cast on that creates knits and purls for a tubular cast on. As I said in the video, this is NOT a cast that can be used for anything but a gauge swatch.

        thanks for the clarification!
