How to make a tubular cast on with waste yarn

In this DROPS video we show how you make a tubular cast on using waste yarn.

This makes flexible and elastic edges, which is perfect for the edge on a ribbed top down sock, ribbed cuff edges etc.
Cast on half the number of sts the pattern call for and work a couple of rows with waste yarn, ending with a RS row. Change to working yarn and work stockinette starting on a WS row. Work a minimum of 4 rows, if thinner yarn work 6 or 8 rows, end with a RS row.
Next row: P1, pick up the yarn in first st below on left needle and K the stitch, P1, repeat pick up and K, continue until end of row. Now cut and remove waste yarn. Continue in rib K1, P1.
