Two Needle Method—Or English Cable.
To cast on make a slip loop in the yarn as given for the Thumb method, at least three inches from the end. It is not necessary to try and gauge the length of yarn required to cast on the number of stitches with this method, as you will be working from the ball of yarn.
Slip this loop on to the left hand knitting needle.
4. Repeat action described in paragraph 3 between last stitches on left hand needle until the required number of stitches have been cast on.
