  Cast-On Stitch

Return to Stitch Samples Index


This stitch is started in exactly the same way as bullion. Bring the needle up at A, down at B (this is the length of the stitch), and come up again at A but do not take the needle all the way through. Place your left-hand forefinger under the back of the thread which comes out at A, twist the loop and place it over the needle (making a half stitch). Release the thread from the finger and pull the thread to close the loop on the needle. Do not ull the loop too tight or it will be difficult to pull the needle through. Make as many cast-ons as required, then hold the stitches between the thumb and finger and pull the needle through so that the stitches sit firmly against the fabric. Take the needle down again at B.
