New Knitter Not Sure How to Cast On in the Middle of a Project?

I'm attempting my 1st project beyond squares & scarves. The project is a little stuffed bunny & the pattern says to "Cast on 12 stitches at the beginning of a row." I tried using the casting on technique that I know, but it didn't seem to work so I'm guessing it's different once your in the midst of things. I looked on line, but wasn't able to find much help on this. If you know a simple & clear way to do this, please share your wisdom with me.

Thanks to all,

Under "Free Videos" on the above drop down menu, select "Cast-On". Look for the knitted on cast on or the cable cast on. Both are types of knitted on cast on. Hold the needle with the stitches on it in your left hand like you were going to begin a new row. Then knit into the first stitch (or between the first 2 stitches), but like the video shows draw the new stitch loop up and put it on the left needle. Do that as many times as you need to.
