Hi and welcome!

You would use a knitted or cable cast on. Turn your piece so the sts you just worked are in your left hand. Then use one of them to add the extra stitches, inserting into the first stitch on the needle instead of using a slip knot. Then put the needle back into your right hand and finish the row. You can find videos of these under Castons.

Welcome to KH. I usually use a knitted cast on at the spot where you have to cast on stitches. Knit into the final stitch where you are to cast on and then leave it on the left needle, do this for each stitch you need to add, then carry on knitting on the other side of your cast ons as normal. Good luck!
