Carol Feller’s Flying Leaves Scarf begins with a two-colour Italian cast on, and the tubular cast off provides a perfect match for finishing the project off! In this video tutorial, Jen shows you how to work this clever sewn cast off, which is also sometimes known as the grafted cast off.
Not only does this provide a matching edge for the start of the Flying Leaves Scarf, this cast-off method is perfect for any situation in which you want a seemingly invisible edge for 1x1 rib. It’s a great match, of course, for the tubular cast-on method we learned back in May with the Totally Tubular Mittens. And I’ve got it on good authority that this is an excellent cast off for 1x1 cuffs of toe-up socks! So whether you’re nearing the end of your beautiful Flying Leaves Scarf, or looking for a way to cast off 1x1 sleeve cuffs, necklines, sock cuffs or any other cast off edge with 1x1 rib, watch on and prepared to be amazed by this neat and flexible cast-off method:
