She shows increases for her pattern, but how you do them will depend on your pattern. I only did one on each end of each needle (4 increases total) like this ---
Round 1 - KFB, knit until 2 stitches remain on needle KFB, k1. Repeat on other needle.
Round 2 - Knit all stitches on both needles

Repeat both rows till you have your ultimate stitch count.

You do them the KFB like the above so it will match on each side. If you're using DPN instead of ML just keep track of where your increases are since you're using m ore than just the two needles.

Jan, I think she said in at least one rendition of this method, that 3 is the magic number for casting on. Did I get that right? Does it apply only to the particular pattern she refers to? How many did you use? Questions, questions, questions. This Turkish cast on seems different somehow from ones I've looked at before. Must try it this way. Thanks!

Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
