Pattern Help

I'm a new knitter, and I'm trying my hand at making a hat for the first time. However, I've hit a snag with this here pattern...
1) It tells me to cast on 13 st in the middle of the pattern...but how do I do that? None of the knitting instructions tell me how. Is casting on the same as increasing...if so...why is it an odd number. I'm so confused.

You can also im me at Impfairyb.

I'd just do a knitted cast-on at the beginning of the row. It's the fourth video on Amy's Cast-On page, right here.

You can do a knitted cast on, a cable cast on, or backwards loop CO.
