I am working on a Karabella pattern - if it helps, here's the pattern: http://www.knitpixie.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=758
at the beginning of the row it wants you to "backward cast-on" addtional loops then you continue on the rest of the row. I get backward cast-on. I dont get this - if i cast on the left needle (right handed) then the yarn is on the wrong end. If i cast on on the right needle it is incredibly clumsy and i end up with this crazy extra yarn in between the two needles.
Has anyone done this and do you have any suggestions on how to handle it? Thanks!!
