    Run out of yarn? Crochet cast-off on a knitted item. Uses no extra yarn! I'll have to remember this.

    Crochet cast-off on a knitted item. Uses no extra yarn! Great for those times when there isn't enough for one more row. I wonder if this would be a tight bind off.

Crochet cast on. All the speed of long tail, without having to worry about estimating the right amount of yarn to use! (Not stretchy, though.)

mmmm... knit into the stitch below! It does such lovely and surprising things with varigated yarn!

Provisionally Casting On With A Crochet Hook | Eskimimi Makes - via bit.ly/epinner << I use this non-provisionally too (just use the working yarn, and don't bother with a chain at the start/end). Makes a great match to the standard knitted bind-off edge.

Cozy colour, cool technique: Hem in the same step with your bind-off.

I first saw this idea from Amy Singer on Pintrest. Once this project was lodged in my brain I was completely incapable of resisting. The crochet was easily accomplished in about an hour from midnight to 1 am, after two glasses of wine. Seriously, they were that easy. I'm sure I'll have to make a pair each for Sofie & Izzy as well.
