Cable cast-on

can someone help me with the cable cast on for a picot cast-off? I know i need to pull the yearn through the first 2 stitchs on the left needle and then put it onto the left needle in the front, but then do i keep pulling yarn through the same two stitches or what is now stitch one and two?

You pull it through the first two stitches on the needle. As you add more stitches, those first two keep bumping over one.

If you do it correctly, it will be very taut, after the first few. If you do it incorrectly, it will be quite loose. Speaking from experience, I am!
