Getting the yarn in position to cast on.

The German twisted cast on, also sometimes referred to as the Old Norwegian cast on, starts much the same way as the long-tail cast on. First you have to measure out a long tail based on the number of stitches you need, make a slip knot and position the yarn in your left hand.

The tail end should be facing front, wrapped around your thumb, while the ball end is looped over your index finger. Hold the needle in your right hand.
