I am having so much trouble with the provisional cast-on. I have watched the video on this site dozens of times, on different occasions. I have also consulted the instructions in Vogue Knitting. But I can't seem to get it. I always end up with a twisted mess.
Today, I sort of understood what was supposed to happen--I had a little section that looked ok, but then I had a few "stitches" that were wrong. I guess I lost concentration and went over instead of under (or something). My project calls for casting on 150 stitches--I don't know how I will manage it.
Does anyone have any insight? Tricks? Tips? Commiseration?
For that many sts, probably the easiest would be to use some other yarn, cast on normally and knit a row, then begin working the pattern with your regular yarn. To take off the CO just cut it and unravel the row as you put the sts on your needles.
