Not quite correct..reread the paragraph. She says she does use a long tail cast on and then sews the hem. She also says you can use a provisional cast on if you wish. In the section on the border she addresses how to hem.

If you start with a long tail cast on you hem it when you're done with a needle and yarn.

If you start with a provisional cast on you sort of hem as you go by picking up one stitch from the needle and one from the provisional cast on and knit them together.

Either way works fine. If you are more comfortable doing the long tail go for it. :thumbsup:
