How to cast-on in middle of a project?
I can't seem to find anything that shows me how to cast on addition stitches in the middle of a knitted project, and it's not increasing, I'm trying to add stitches around for a thumb in a mitten. Help?

a slipknot doesn't seem to work either.

I'll try my best to explain how I do it: knit a stitch like you would normaly only instead of sliding the stitch off the left needle, take the new stitch you just made and put it on the left needle, do that for as many increases as needed, and then continue to follow your pattern.


Does that make any sense for you?

You don't need a slipknot, just do the knitted CO as if you already had a couple sts on the needle.
