I use a turkish cast on which creates a closed toe right at the beginning. I increase by using KFB on both sides till I have my toe then just knit till you're ready to do the heel. Most toe up patterns use some form of this same method. No provisional cast on or short rows for the toe. How on earth did you find this pattern?
Ninja skills. Lol.

This might seem stupid but, I can do Turkish easily on dpn instead of magic loop?
