I've tried using the backward loop cast-on when I was making a scarf from Sally Melville's Knit book because this is the method she recommended. I was getting holes so after fiddling around, I ended up doing the cable cast-on and knitting into the back of the stitch where the cast-on starts (my loose stitch was the one before the cast-on started).

For those that use the backward loop cast-on, how did you keep the edge tidy looking, like in the video? Mine were looking very uneven and if I wasn't real careful, I'd have this excess yarn when I knitted back.
