CAST OFF:
Casting off secures the stitches when a piece of knitting is complete, linking them together so they cannot unravel. Casting off is normally done following the stitch sequence, so a knit stitch is cast off knitwise and a purl stitch purlwise 🙂
The last row was working in KNIT so we will be casting off knitwise!

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
