When you have the number of stitches you need, cut the free end!
You'll never have to little yarn!
yes karrying, i'm intrigued too, but i don't quite understand. i always use the long tail cast on method, and i always wind up with too much yarn. i like the idea of wrapping it around the needle the number of times you need (why have i never thought of that???), but i'm curious as to exactly how this method you discovered works. wouldn't you end up with that knot in your work? or no?
