@Sewon, to add to what suzeeq wrote, when you're knitting a circular item you bring your last cast-on stitch to meet your first cast-on stitch (like a snake eating its own tail). You "join" the two ends by knitting/purling your first stitch into your first cast-on stitch while the working yarn is still attached to the last cast-on stitch. Working that first stitch joins the two ends and completes the circle. Just make sure all cast-on stitches are on the inside of the cable and not twisted.
