castin on at same edge question.
hello everyone im new to knitting and to this forum..tried to find something similar on previous threads but after looking for the past 1 hour didnt find something that would help with my pattern problem.i enclosed a link of the pattern im working on. thank u all in advance for helping me.

Cast on 3 sts, p to end 12(16-20-24-28) sts. Working in St st, cast on 3 sts at same edge once, 2 sts 5 times, then inc 1 st every WS row 12 times 37(41-45-49-53) sts. Work even until piece measures 7 from beg, end on WS.

ok this is what i dont understand..when this pattern says cast on does it mean to increase sts? and when to cast on 3 sts at same edge once?i ve been looking over the net how to do this and cant find a way...pls help me

I believe your pattern wants you to increase the number of stitches by casting on more stitches at the beginning of each wrong side row. If they wanted you to simply increase into next stitches, most patterns will say something like, "increase 1 in next three stitches, or something similar.

So, with your wrong side facing, do a knit cast on or cable cast on of 3 stitches at the beginning of the row, and continue purling the existing stitches to the end. Then knit one across without doing any cast on. All of your cast on stitches will be at the beginning of the wrong side (purl side) because if you look down to the RIGHT SIDE instructions, it says "Cast on sts at lower edge at beg of RS rows instead of WS rows."

So, at the beginning of the next 5 wrong side rows, you cast on 2 stitches instead of three.

After that, you are increasing only one stitch at the beginning of each wrong side row for 12 wrong side rows.

Here is a video for cable cast on:

After you cast on the sts at the beginning of the purl row, purl across them to the older sts. I mention this because sometimes people aren't sure if they're supposed to do that or not.
