Stop Estimating Your Long Tail Length!
If you’re having trouble estimating the length of the tail for your long tail cast-on, especially when you’re casting on say 378 stitches for something like my Demalangeni shawl, this is a great method to use that doesn’t require estimating.
I knew about this method and used it when making my own Demalangeni, but I did just learn the tid bit about removing the slip knot. Who knew?!
