I don't even try that one. I had a pattern that had me knit a few rows with scrap yarn and then join the real working yarn, do the pattern, and then later come back and just unravel the scrap yarn and pick up from there.
(hope that makes sense.)
Some people use a crochet cast on and then unzip the crochet chain afterwards and pick up the stitches.
