Tubular Cast On
This is a great cast on for the neck of top down pullovers. It's super stretchy!
Long-tail cast on
A great all purpose cast on as it offers some elasticity.
Backwards Loop Cast On
This cast on is typically used when adding stitches onto the ends of a row. For example, when knitting a top down cardigan, you may cast on for button bands after working some neck shaping. It can also be used when creating buttonholes.
Kfb / K1-f/b
Knit into the front and back of the same stitch to create two stitches from one stitch.
M1L and M1R increases
These increases are commonly used when working top down sweaters, though there are many different ways to work increases in knitting.
