by Susan Myers on May 19, 2013

Do you love to knit, but are stumped by certain knitting stitches such as the cast-on?  Knitting instructor, Liat Gat, has just launched a new ebook on Cast-Ons.  The perfect way to begin a project perfectly!

Learn to knit like a superstar with Liat from Knit Freedom!  The Cast-on is the beginning of a project, and what better way to get a project started professionally than to learn a proper cast-on?

Did you know that there are over 50 different cast-ons that you could use for any given project?  Each cast-on stitch has a different purpose.  For example:

  • Tillibuddy’s cast-on to create a buttonhole,
  • Italian tubular cast-on to invisibly start ribbing
  • Chain cast-on to perfectly match your cast-on and bind-off edges

Liat shows you in detail 38 different cast-ons, explains their uses and teaches you not only how to create each stitch, but understand why you would use that particular stitch for a project.

I’ve been a fan of Liat’s ebooks for years.  All her knitting tutorials have amazingly clear, beautiful videography.  She patiently shows you how to complete stitches, repeating the steps until you are confident in your own ability.  I have sat for quite a while in front of the computer and one of her videos, knitting along as she shows me the ropes.

It is like having your own personal knitting instructor come to your house at your convenience!

Be sure to check out Liat’s latest video, Cast-Ons, along with her other great instructive ebook courses.  You will be knitting like a pro in no time!

And then you can tackle some great free knitting projects like these!

I received a free copy of Cast-Ons by Liat Gat in order to do this review.  My opinions are entirely my own.  Her stuff is awesome.
