the emily ocker cast on is a noose cast on.
(and its a bit of a PITA)

TechKnitter (find her blog, or look her up on ravelry) has an alternate noose cast on (a bit easier than the emily ocker)

both of these cast ons start a loose, large rings. but pull the tail of the cast on, and they tighten up into small eyelets--they are very attractive--and its worth learning one or both .

the third option:
cast on 4, work in i-cord for an inch or two.

run a lifeline, then increase (to suggested Cast on number)
continue from there.

when finishing, cut the tail end of the i-cord, un ravel, and use the tail (and lifeline to make a drawstring closure
