Getting Started with Judy's Magic Cast-On

If you choose to knit in the round for this project, you’ll need to use Judy’s magic cast on, a method often used for toe-up socks that won’t leave you with an uncomfortable seam along the toe of a sock. Casting on in this manner can be a bit tricky to master but, once you have it, can be a lifesaver and save lots of time that would otherwise be spent sewing up bottoms seams.
