One thing that can really make a subtle but definite difference in how your project may look is that sometimes you really want the cast-on and bind-off to match. But which cast-on to use? Which bind-off?
Here’s how you can do it without hardly a thought!
Use a crocheted provisional cast-on, whether you like to crochet a long chain and pick up and knit through the bumps in the back of the chain, or whether you like to crochet over the needle.
Knit the piece as you like, and then bind-off as you like.
Unravel your provisional crochet chain and place the loose stitches on a needle. Now…bind-off the provisional cast-on the exact same way you finished the piece.
A perfectly matched cast-on and bind-off. Ta dah!
