We are looking for Designers like you.

Cast On has several regular features. Projects related to these topics are always welcome.

• Fashion Framework discusses a particular type of garment or project.

• Stitch Anatomy discusses a stitch pattern.

• Learn Something New discusses a specific technique and provides a simple pattern for a small project. Past topics have been Beading and Jogless Joins.

• Pattern From a Member is restricted to a TKGA member. We give precedence to those working on the Master Hand Knitting or Master Machine Knitting Program.

• Special Topics in Finishing.

• Technical articles. We are always interested in articles discussing knitting history and traditions, new ways of doing things, and in depth treatment of techniques

Our intention is to have a range of projects in each issue. Proposals for sweaters, accessories, designs for children and babies, and household items. Cast On is not “seasonal”. Our members live all around the world in very different climates. They also are interested in seeing projects for upcoming seasons.

Proposals for machine knitting projects are also welcome.
