How do I cast on stitches after I've already begun knitting? It doesn't ask for an increase, but says to cast on.
Someone help me! I'm so confused!
When you cast on in the middle, I think that an inc is implied. The easiest way to co in the middle of a row is via backward loop (see Amy's videos). Backward loop is also loose, so perhaps that "Knitting On" method would be better. I'm thinking you should cast on to the working needle, not the dormant one. Amy has a video of the "Knit On" method of casting on too.
Hope that helps a little...
