Some cast ons are more suitable for certain stitch patterns than others... for instance, I like the alternate cable cast on for ribbing. I rarely use the single cast on method, because I think it's sloppy and loose. I use the cable cast on a lot too, expecially for scarves that i won't put fringe on, because it's very neat and firm. But I think it it a matter of preference for most people.
