if you're working with straight needles or small circular needles, you can't. You'll need a fairly long circular needle. You don't have to knit in a circle on it. You can knit back and forth just the way you would on straight needles.
Besides being able to cast on more sts, it'll also be easier on your wrists to have the sts distributed along the circular needle rather than two straight needles.
