Description: This cast on and bind off technique is a great way to add that finished touch to any 1 x 1 ribbed edge. Use it on a hat, sock, sweater edges... really, anywhere you want a professional, polished look.

a bit of scrap yarn (look for something smooth in a contrasting color)

crochet hook, close to the same size as your knitting needle
spare circular needle, US 8 or 1 size smaller
