We will go over great cast-ons and bind-offs for lace, for rib, and more. We will also look at pairing cast-ons and bind-offs that look great together. Let's start and end with a bang!
Note: Must know the long-tail cast-on (in slingshot position), how to knit and purl, and have familiarity with stitch anatomy.
