Notes for Knitting with Amitola Grande Louisa Harding suggests using the cable cast on method with Amitola Grande as the yarn is single spun, constant twisting of the yarn to cast on using the thumb method will result in the yarn loosing strength and breaking.When choosing yarn for your project select balls which start with the same colour, to avoid any strong colour striping, once you have completed your first ball of yarn, ensure the next ball you use starts with a similar colour to the one just finished.
