Old cast on stitches

The TAST stitch for week 32 is cast on stitch. It wasn’t easy to decide which samples I wanted to share, so it’s a big post today. Of course I start with my TAST 2007 sampler. It was the first time I tried cast on stitches and I had a lot of trouble with my tangled threads. I used stranded floss (2 and 4 threads), a variegated machine embroidery thread and dark red acrylic knitting yarn.
The next time I used cast on stitches was on my dragon ornament for Stitch Explorer. Here I was filling the last space at the bottom. There’s an olive green cast on stitch in the bottom left corner. It's all done with stranded floss.
This is a detail on my ATC Sampler CP. A green cast on stitch between pulled thread, herringbone stitches, chain stitches and buttonhole stitches. All stitched with 2 threads of stranded floss.
This is a detail on block 7 of my Crazy Monday quilt. The bottom of the cupcake is a whipped buttonhole stitch. The topping is a spiral trellis stitch and the cherry is a cast on stitch. All stitched with stranded floss. The cupcake is only 5/8 inch tall!
This is a seam on my first encrusted block. Feather stitch in perle 5 and cast on stitches in perle 12 on velvet.
A detail on my embroidery Nefertiti. I think the cast on stitch is done in perle 5.
And a detail on my embroidery Touch. The cast on stitch is done is stranded silk.
