Cast on at the end of a row?

I’ve started ‘Edgar’ from Knitty tonight ( ) because I need a smallish scarf to wear with my plush-collared jacket.

Here’s the line that gives me trouble: “Row 18: Sl1, k5, sl1, k2tog, psso, k6, CO 9 sts. 22 sts.”

How do I cast on extra stitches at the end of a row (presumably using the yarn you’re already knitting with)?
I usually cast on with the long tail method, but that clearly isn’t going to work here…

I know that someone else can explain it better, but I’ll give it a go anyway!

This is how I do it: I finish the row calling for the cast-on normally and turn my work to prepare for the next row. I knit my first stitch, but don’t pull the loop off of the right needle. I slip the stitch I just made back on to the right needle and repeat for as many stitches as called for. Clear as mud? I’m sure there’s a video on here of it too, but I haven’t looked for it! :oops:


I would use the “knit-on” method. There is a video under basic techniques. This was a really hard thing for me to figure out when I started, casting on while I was already knitting!

Thank you!

I tried Nicolethegeek’s method, and it seems to be working. :cheering:
