Critical Cast-Ons (33:13)
Start your project by choosing the right cast-on to best enhance your work. Then follow along as Ann shows you how to improve basic cast-ons and goes over her favorite methods for ribbed tubular cast-ons and provisional cast-ons.

Does your project use increases or decreases? You’ll explore several versions, including slanting left, right and neutral, to successfully shape with ease.

Better Bind-Offs (32:29)

You’re not done yet! In this lesson Ann demonstrates how to seam your work with a simple method that yields sturdy results.

Knitter’s Bag of Tricks (15:15)
