Purl 3 sts, then put your right needle in your left hand, use the knit or cable cast on (see the cast on videos here for how to do them), then put the needle back in your right hand. Purl across your work to where the next bound off sts are, and do the same thing.

You could also do a backward loop cast on, but it's a little trickier to knit from easily.

Just keep going- it's pretty clever how this will make an armhole but you'll see!
