this shows how stretchy the long tail cast on can be. I continued working off the cast on in this video to create my swatch for my bind off video. Here is a clip that shows it fully stretched. Leaving space between the stitches is the key!

Long tail cast on
Here is a video which I show how to work the long tail cast on left handed. I start by using just one strand than at about 1:40 I show how to use 2 strands which is really useful if you do not know how much tail you will need for your co edge when casting on a lot of stitches (ex, sweaters, blankets). I also explain how to make sure your long tail cast on edge remains stretchy.
