Knitted cast-on in purl?
I'm knitting a Picovoli (two years late, I know!) and have just gotten to the armholes. The pattern suggests doing the "knitted cast-on in purl" for the underarms to make a snug edge. I can't figure out what this is - does anyone know?

I did a knitted cast-on, which was pretty loose, so I want to take it out and try again. I tried purling and guessing how to slip the stitch back onto the needle, but it didn't work -- my working yarn ended up staying at the beginning of the cast-on stitches.

Thanks, Susan, but I don't think I can use that because I'm casting on in the middle of the row. I can't do a long-tail cast-on. I appreciate it, though!

How would this backwards cast on go..half way down page..this is the only technique I've seen that sounds close that can be done in the middle of a row:

A purled caston is like the knitted CO except you do the stitches purlwise. I've done it, both as starting CO and for armholes. It looks like the crocheted CO, a nice chained edge. It's a little awkward at first, but so is any new thing. Here's a how to - http://www.knittingonthenet.com/learn/twpurlcaston.htm
