how do I do a provisional cast-on?
This is for a hat pattern I like. I am to knit the cabled band first, casting on with a p-c-o....so that when it's the width I want, I rip out the p-c-o and pick up stitches to continue knitting the hat.

There is a video at the tab above under Cast-ons that has one method.

I usually use this one though as I find it easier.

Yesterday I found another great site for casting on videos. I want to try doing socks from the toe up and just could not seem to get enough information by just reading the instructions. Try this link
http://letsknit2gether.com/2008/09/2...-up-sock-toes/
you may have to copy and paste to get there if you can't click on it and get there directly. It is Cat Bordhi's site.

Thanks to both of you! I have been wanting to learn the pco, too. I looked at the knittingatnoon video, and it looks so much easier than I thought it would be!

Thanks Jan for the link. I was going to ask how to do this as my book shows instructions using a crochet hook but a video is GREAT!!!!
