Cast On Comb

I have been working on a cast on comb, I think i have become a cast on comb aholic. I have them in various sizes from 5 pins up to and including 78 pins. My method of storing them, I have a basket that I have placed sheets of cardboard that are about 8 x 12 inches, i hook the hooks onto the 8 inch side of the card board, each comb gets its own board, except for the short ones, they share the space with other short one. It works surprisingly well. I have not solved the longs ones yet, but my mind is working on. it. Each cast on comb eventually will get its own rag hem. I am planning on posting a how-to video on creating the cast on comb that i use


  1. I like this idea. I have made several cast on combs but I am not happy with them because I clipped the paperclips and I don't like the feel of the rough edges. Have you ever made one out of wood and cup hooks? I'm talking with Big Daddy about making one for me, or two, or....

  3. CrazyCarla I tried the cup hooks, they were too big for me. I am currently trying Curtain hook, they seem to work, I will keep you posted.

  4. I did not like the cup hooks either, the paper clips were ok but I could not get them to line up right.

    the drapery hooks are ok but they are sharp (great for hanging, but not for my hands when I grab too tight.

Fold the material in half vertical (placing the pattern 1/2 in the front and 1/2 in the back)
Attaching I cord to satchel
using the overcast stitch, catch the edge seam of front and back, then into 1 or 2 stitches of the I cord then back into the next stitch in the overcast fashion,  (needle will be making a circle motion)  I will post a photo soon.
