I am making a Military Helmet Liner and the pattern calls for casting on 59 stiches when there are already 32 stiches on the needle and no stiches on the left hand needle. I have tried the Backward Loop cast on and ended up with extra yarn between the right needle and left after I started knitting again. I have viewed the videos for Knitted and Cable cast on and don't understand how to do these when on end of the yarn is already attached to the right needle. HELP! please.
I would reccomend the cable cast on. Turn your work so that all stitches are on the left needle. Do the cable cast on by pulling the yarn through the stitch closest to the tip without lifting that off. Then put that stitch on the left needle again. do the same thing through this stitch. and so on.
the cable cast on is in the videos as you know.
