About the Frilled Cast On
The Frilled Cast On is extremely simple and gives a pretty, frilled edge that looks like crochet and blocks quite flat on a Stockinette Stitch piece. It is a good match for the picot bind off and is a nice alternative to ribbing, the German twisted cast on, garter or moss stitch when you want an edging that is more decorative or delicate.Continue to 2 of 4 below.

Continuing the Frilled Cast On
Cast on 1 stitch.
Repeat these three steps until you have the required number of stitches.
It is important to remember that you are casting on 4 times as many stitches as you normally would for a garment or piece in the width you are making, and so you will need a lot more yarn for the cast on if you are using the long tail method. A good idea is to use two balls of yarn for casting on.
