If your estimate falls a little short, you can cast on the remaining stitches by "purling on". It's like the "knitting on" cast-on that Amy demonstrates, but it's from the purl side and it duplicates the look of long-tail cast-on very closely.

Lily Chin demonstrated this technique on "Knitty Gritty".
