Welcome to Kalopasak Friends we shall see one more type of cast on, known as “Provisional Cast On”. Other types of CO we saw, 1. Knitting CO.2. Long tail CO, 3. Double thread long tail CO, 4. CO by crochet hook, 5. Cable CO For provisional CO, along with working yarn we need some left over yarn piece. Most of the time we work on one side (above the CO) of the stitches CO but if we want to work on other side also, then we need this type of CO For socks we shall need to pick the sts on CO side and work in other direction also. Also if you want to sew this CO side with some other knitted part then this type of CO will go easy. In third case if you have to work border then also this type of CO will be easier. Thus provisional CO method is very useful. In provisional CO initially we need to CO by crochet hook. One method of CO by crochet hook we have already seen now let us see another one. Now let us see another way of CO with crochet needle. Take a contrast colour piece of left over yarn. For 10 sts to CO, let us make a slip knot and work out 15 chains. (5 chains more than the sts needed) Cut the yarn. Look at these chains. On one side you can see such Vs, On other sides there are small bumps (or horizontal threads). Now we shall cast on through these bumps. We have taken contrast colour because when we want to remove this scrap yarn and pick up the stitches, it will become easy. Leave the first bump and make stitch through second bump. So insert the knitting needle in the second bump, wrap the working yarn and take the loop out. This is our first stitch. For next st. insert the needle in the next bump, wrap the yarn, take the loop out. That is your second stitch. Through each bump you have to make one stitch. See the back side of CO is just like our crochet hook CO After completing 10 sts. We can work one row all purl, then next row all knit and so on. After some rows we shall get such type of pattern knitted on one side of our stitches Now if you want to work on other side of these sts then, then remove the knot at end (where we have extra 5 chains). Then open those crocheted chains and take the stitches on other knitting needle. After picking up these stitches, we can again work on this side ( in case of socks or border). Or we can pick up stitches from these small red bumps which you can see on the CO side. Thus now you are free to work on both sides of CO. Thus provisional CO is very important method.
