Moebius Cast On Video

Man, I had a hard time uploading anything yesterday. Well here is the video. Not the greatest quality; I'm hoping to reshoot it with the aid of my camerman in better lighting.
When it comes to storytelling though, I'm no Cat Bordhi.



Part 2. This one shows you how to join it in a round.

Thank you. I read the directions and read them again and it did not make any sense to me. Your video clicked the lightbulb on. Thank you so much!!! Now I can't wait to get started.

Thank you so much! I am a visual learner and those written directions were like Chinese. I am bookmarking your directions. Thank you so much for the time it took to make the video.

Your video confirmed for my interpretation of how to cast on. However, I think I may have misinterpreted how to count the stitches and, consequently, I think I have double what I really needed. I was making the sage wrap in her first book, Treasury...., when I was talking to a friend who is also working on a project in that book. It turns out she and I had different interpretations of how to count stitches. How, may I ask, did you count (e.g., each stitch picked up by going under cable or both the cable wrapped stitch and yarn over as 1 stitch)? Hope I made sense. Thank you for posting the video. It did help some.

Thanks! This was such a great help. My friend at the yarn store helped me with this before, but I wasn't able to go to the yarn store on the day that I found your video. TY TY TY... grea directions.

Thanks. Great video. With the patient help of my friend at the yarn shop, I had done this cast-on before. The yarn store wasn't open on the day when I wanted to start another moebius. Thanks to this video, I did it myself.
TY TY TY

Thanks so much for these videos! Reading the directions, I was convinced that I had to make a slipknot on the cable of the circular needle - your visual aids were just what I needed!

I'm making my first moebius cowl for the Ravelympics - your video made the cast on crystal clear - many thanks!

Thank you! I am a visual learner so no amount of written instructions will sink in. But I feel confident enough to tackle this now.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Could not make any sense of this in the pattern I have for a Moebius Wrap (www.rohrspatzundwollmeise.de)(is also in english, thankfully!), so after a quick Google managed to find your video... now it makes perfect sense!! And how easy it is, after all!! Thanks again
