Superfast provisional caston

On the site of Garnstudio I found a lot of very useful videos, without words so everyone can understand.

Very nice when knitting a wreath, this kind of provisional caston. It is superfast (cannot be compared with crochet...) and easy to perform. When the first half of the wreath is done, just take the circular needle holding the caston stitches and start over, knitting a second pattern at the backside. Which makes it a reversible wreath - in a way.

The video tutorial can be viewed here. They show it first using a piece of yarn, followed by the same caston using a circular needle. I love it!
