What do you have in mind? Are you planning a long scarf with the ends joined? The Kitchener stitch is used to join live stitches seamlessly. It would provide the least noticeable joining of the ends. If you cast on normally and then bind off at the end and seam the ends together, it would be more noticeable. I think your plan for the provisional cast on is a good one and it's a good skill to have. It comes in handy lots of times. And yes, I think Kitchener would be better than 3 needle bind off here.

The provisional cast on gives you the live stitches for Kitchener grafting. Here is a video for grafting garter stitch that may help when you get to the seam. Your scarf won't have a right side or wrong side as in the video but if you line up the bumps the same way, it should turn out nicely in pattern.

Thank you all soooo much! After the 1st of the year I am going to try and learn to carry colors, so I am sure I will be asking a bunch of questions about that too.
Thanks again!
