Use the knitted cast on. Turn to begin a row, knit into the first st, but leave it on the needle and put the new stitch on it as well. Repeat. If you look at the video it starts with a slipknot, but that's when you start with no sts; just pretend you've already cast some on and go from there. Then work across the new and old stitches.

Thank you for your help. So basically, I am just increasing to the tune of 34 stitches and then continuing. Soosie

I am so glad that you asked that question. I am making a sweater for an American Girl doll and I was stymied. Now I don't even have to wait and hope for an answer!
