Extending knitting Help please

Does anyone know how to Add Rows of knitting to a garment which has been finished already.

The problem i have is The Shop no longer has the final ball of wool i need to finish the last 30 rows of my poncho pattern - so I need to undo my first row and add a different colour to it to match the end of the garment.
I have check the internet for more wool but none available - I remember seeing something like this in an old knitting book but cannot find it anywhere - can anyone help - I'm also a newbie to this site.
Thank you in advance

Yeah, you'd have to undo or cut off the cast on and take it from there.

Just make sure to use a lifeline before cutting so you don't lose the live stitches
