Tutorial: Twisted German Cast-On

Today Chris, Mark's mum, asked me to help her remember the Twisted German Cast-On she learnt in Get Knitted's Fair Isle workshop recently. At first I was at a lost since I never used it myself and didn't know what it was. After some quick searching, however, I found a few useful websites with videos and photo tutorials. The best one, in my opinion, is the following video.

This is an ideal stretchy cast-on for I ought to use if I ever knit socks top down again since I usually make them too tight.

I am glad that Chris asked about it because, even though I had to research first, I learned something new myself.
